I think that's wrong -- there are very few exceptions, and those are
_exceptions_ -- not single languages, but "groups". It's a _good_ thing
if they stand out, because indeed they are slightly weird.
I have no idea what "manju" is, but "african", "arab", and "cyrillic"
(and of course "other") seem ill-defined compared to the rest (unless of
course "arab" really means "arabic", in which case "ar" could be used).
Making them stand out is a useful property, not a flaw.
Here's the list:
The automobile has not merely taken over the street, it has dissolved the
living tissue of the city. Its appetite for space is absolutely insatiable;
moving and parked, it devours urban land, leaving the buildings as mere islands
of habitable space in a sea of dangerous and ugly traffic.
