Yes. It is used for [j] and for [ʒ] and for [dʒ].vastor wrote:And therein lies the problem, the phonetics of j are completely different across europe, and so the rationale for using it evaporates.
This is incorrect. u is pronounced [uː] and [ʊ] and [y] and [ɨ] and [iː] and [ʌ] in Europe.I strongly disagree with the argument that both j and u have equal merit. u is quite phonetically consistent across europe, so its case for inclusion has a greater weight.
