I would like to ask members of this list who object to the current Korean government romanization system to help me by providing a succint but detailed list of the main aspects which they consider to be flawed or problematic (obviously the use of eo and eu to represent non-diphthongs is already noted), with an indication of why they consider this or that aspect to be a problem in making things Korean accessible to non Korean speakers. I am not inviting yet another debate on the list about this issue, and hope that people might send me their comments off-list directly to ansonjae at sogang.ac.kr  These comments will help me give advice when it is asked for, as it seems it may be.
