It'll never work just giving them vowels. You'll only encourage sloth and dependency. The Welsh should be encouraged to take advantage of their amazing comparative advantage in the production of consonants. They'd be much better off trading with prolific vowel suppliers like the Hawaiians. It's economics 101.

Many clever people everywhere.
 
Many dumb asses, too.
 
One of my Danish teachers used to pronounce "vowel" as "wovel." You know, to rhyme with "tovel."
 
Wordsmith, punmeister, raconteur, guru, rhombus. Few have liberated more words from the shackles of their spellings than our Arlington. He is simply the heterographer supreme. What most people don't know, however, is that one cold and starry night, after slipping on a Tom Jones CD, he let the dark side of his lexicographical genius bubble up and he invented the Welsh language as a cruel joke. Thousands of Welshers owe their miserable lives to him, unable to communicate with even their own kind. They sit in their caves with their sheep and prostrate themselves before their humble twig-and-pebble alter, adorned with any shiny things they have found. They chant phonetically, in a language they cannot comprehend 'There is only one Bogol, and Arlington is his name'.
 
He's writing in Welsh... yes, it all makes sense now.
