I would say that the translators should be trusted as much as possible, 
so if they want to use those glyphs in the Bible, they should be left alone.

However, in the locale file, we should add spellings that do not use the 
<Cai> and <Caai> glyphs for users who may use the more restrictive 
orthography defined by the Inuit Cultural Institute.
