Create biometric word list for conveying data bytes in a clear unambiguous way via a voice channel. PGP does this but with a set of words that do not scale well for different languages

Can this list be an accepted default across providers??

Note: There are several other word lists for conveying data in a clear unambiguous way via a voice channel:

the NATO phonetic alphabet maps individual letters and digits to individual words
the S/KEY system maps 64 bit numbers to 6 short words of 1 to 4 characters each from a publicly accessible 2048-word dictionary. The same dictionary is used in RFC 2289.
the Diceware system maps 5 base-6 random digits (almost 13 bits of entropy) to a word from a dictionary of 7,776 unique words.
FIPS 181: Automated Password Generator converts random numbers into somewhat pronounceable "words".
mnemonic encoding converts 32 bits of data into 3 words from a vocabulary of 1626 words
