tengwar is no joke

JD has blogged an article where he sort of jokingly refers to support for tengwar as the next item on the flash wishlist. i will take mild exception to that here ;-) in fact tengwar's been in the unicode pipeline since 1997. there is indeed a real proposal for tengwar and since its not yet been rejected, i'd say its not such a joke ;-) on the other hand, klingon (yes, really) was proposed around the same time and was however rejected (which i hear still rankles the klingons no end, they keep trying to stage WTO-like demonstrations at unicode conventions but fortunately they get too drunk to ever find the meetings).
