No, Walter; u have not thought it out fully.
Its only a matter of working it out.
Where there is a will there is a way.
First there must be a filosofical commitment, i.e.,
a policy decision to turn our attention to granting an efficient system
to future generations; the same principle as the metric system.
Emotionally, I dislike the metric system,
because I learned English measurements,
but I cannot deny that a system based on ten is better;
more efficient n more convenient.
The same applies to fonetic spelling.
The non-fonetic parts of the old system will fall of their own weight.
Inefficiency is non-viable.
