It's hard for me to take a post on orthography seriously when it  
begins by ignoring the standard orthography.

There might be, but your proposals don't look like Latin orthography  
to me.  Where's the "dotless question mark" key on a Latin keyboard?   
Your examples are full of untypeable characters, and a few  
unprintable ones.

If your goal is to make searches work better, there's already the  
Unicode PUA mapping.  If you want it to be more "readable", I think  
you're trying to solve something which is not a problem, and I think  
your proposed solutions are counterproductive.  I also strongly  
disagree with your statement that mutable case can "make any text  
easier to read", though I don't consider it important enough to debate.
