In my opinion, the problem is caused by the 
unawareness. The Eva transcription daiin is
a representation of something we know what it looks
like in the MS. But it does not imply that these
are 5 letters. 
One can also write da(iin) to indicate that the last
three are connected together, although that would
be quite unusual. A better example is qokeey vs.
qok(eey). Even then, there still is no implied
claim about the nr. of letters.

I didn't mean to quote you, but I may have done
so without knowing it.
I feel comfortable that 'iin' could be a single
glyph. Less so that 'eey' is a single glyph.
Still, I don't see how anyone can be sure. 

All in the best spirit of open discussion, of
