If proto-runic was created a la Hangeul, then perhaps the alphabet should be organized
along phonetic lines? Groupings by point of articulation, perhaps?
This is how the alphabet is ordered in Senjecas, according to POA.
First, the consonants:
Labial: p, b, f, v, ɱ ( /m̥/, /m_0/), m; (<f,v> are bilabial, not labio-dental)
Dental: t, d, þ, ð, ł (/l̥/, /l_0/), l
Alveolar: c (/ʦ/, /ts/), ƶ (/ʣ/, /dz/), s, z, r (/ɾ̥/, /4_0/), n
Palatal: k, g, x (/ç/, /c/), q (/ʝ/, /j\/), h (/ȷ̊/, /j_0/), ȝ (/j/, /j/)
Then the vowels from close front unrounded down and back up to close back rounded. The three weak vowels are ordered after their closest strong vowel:
i, ı (/ɪ/, /I/), e, ə (/ə/, /@/), a, ɔ, o, u, y (/ʊ/, /U/.
