The existence of an agreement is of course the most important thing. 
'kana' would work, but it would be confusing, and we already have 'hani' 

I suspect that font developers who have used 'kana'  will have to touch 
their fonts in many cases, so there may be little benefit in trying to 
extend 'kana'.

(If I were one of those, I would seriously consider putting all the 
features under the DFLT script)
