Khmer and Mongolian are very much living languages, the Wikipedia article on Amharic suggests that it uses Ethiopic characters, new material in Cherokee has been showing up on the Web in Unicode, and Canadian Syllabics seem to be used for a wide variety of Cree languages. When I look at the *huge* impact that Unicode has had for making ancient Greek easier to manipulate and exchange, I'd hate to deny that same privilege to speakers of these languages. You may feel that math characters are more important than characters in these languages, but native speakers and scholars who work with these languages may disagree. Jonathan
