Seriously? It has exactly the same merits and demerits as every single one of the other proposed solutions? Or, failing that, at least the exact same _balance_ of merits and demerits? That seems extremely unlikely on its face.
I think the only way this can be true is if you've decided a priori that no conceivable proposal has any chance of being "correct" or "desirable". Which is, in fact, a defensible position in light of Klingon's status as a language with a Single Source of Truth (especially when the SST has reputedly found the problem insoluble). But it does sort of get in the way of discussion.
