I think the idea is that you'd have to use a special keyboard driver  
if you wanted to type without needing to do workarounds like the four- 
keypress dance he said he uses for the glottal stop character.

At least one of his proposals seems to contain a character which  
isn't yet supported on many platforms using *any* keystrokes.

Given that special effort would be required in any event, I have no  
idea why he is so dismissive of the existing PUA mapping for Klingon
