So don't conflate them!  If you're implementing a transliterator, do  
it right.  If you're using someone else's that doesn't do it right,  
either point out the error and get them to correct it, or use one  
that doesn't have the problem.  A dull blade should be sharpened or  
replaced if necessary.  It shouldn't be used to "cut" oatmeal and  
praised for its sharpness.
