Sure, I will tomorrow create a transliteration to latin script and post
diffs here.
What you propose is in fact already used in some other places, I agree
with you.

As for transliteration, cyrillic to latin is one-to-one, straightforward
with no exceptions.
A simple table lookup is enough.
Going from latin to cyrillic, there are some exceptions, but we could
solve that.
I can provide Hans with all that is needed.
