The point is: Eva is a transcription alphabet
that allows to convert the shapes in the 
Voynich MS into a computer-readable text, following
some strict rules.
The interpretation of this text is the next step,
and would usually include a conversion of the 
various combinations of building blocks into
ones chosen alphabet. The benefit in using Eva is
that it allows for a standard representation of
unusual characters, like ligatures of common shapes
or completely different shapes.
The Eva character 'c' is beyond reasonable doubt
not a character on its own, but part of several
different ones. Just like the left half of Latin
'c' or 'o'.

As Gabriel pointed out, there is only one way
to transcribe a Voynich word, as long as it
is clear in the MS which parts are connected
with each other.
