If one considers <qo> a single character, how does one code the other

I am suggesting that composites and singletons such as <ol> and <l>
could be coded as separate symbols. If some composites are missed by
being conservative in designating them the output still should more
nearly characterize whatever intelligence is in the script by
eliminating some of the noise. An attempt to eliminate all the noise
would risk eliminating some of the intelligence.
In some contexts the rare characters could be crucial but assigning
them all the same character temporarily in order to keep the alphabet
to a workable length might be worth consideration.
