What do you mean by "Script 'Depth'"? I dabble in conscripting, but I don't know standard terminology, if there is any. Google has let me down once again.

Depth, as in correspondence between grapheme and phoneme.
The orthography of English has a gap between phoneme and grapheme, so that <lead> may be both /liːd/ (as in, verb) and /lɛd/ (as in, metal), thus English has a deep orthography. Chinese is like that, taken to the extreme. On the contrary, Polish has a very "shallow" script.

So, a phonetic/phonemic script would be the shallowest?

Well, the IPA would, but, yes, in practical usage a phonetic script would
