The form of a Chinese character cannot vary without
limit and in
unpredictable ways. The number 214 is not sacrosanct,
and there are
around 900 "phonetics" in one list


Yes, but even taking your and Marco's remarks into
account, the system Marco envisioned would only cover
about 90% of Hànzì without complex input. Using Pinyin
input covers 100% of Hànzì without complex manipulations.
