PS: Jack, if the WAW was only vocalic, then somebody had better explain why 
the ca. 9th-BCE so-called digamma of Ionian Greek is the *consonantal*  VAV 
-- that's why it was later dropped.  The voiced phoneme was covered by 
voiced beta and the unvoiced phoneme was covered by phi. The vocalic WAW is 
upsilon. WAW is also consonantal in the earliest Etruscan (ca. 10th-8th BCE).
