Kanji needs to go the way of the dinosaur anyway.

The homonym problem can be solved by differentiating use of hiragana and katakana, so that nose is ハナ and flower is はな for example. Spell the loan words in romaji, either the correct spelling of their native origin or katakanized spelling, I don't care.
