    It's an interesting question MR. Why not a c natural and a c flat unison? For one, it's a more awkward spelling as opposed to c and b natural, as would be d and d flat or even E flat and E double flat. My guess is that in CP the diminished unison spelling is hard to fit harmonically and stylistically speaking in easier less complex language. Simplicity, clarity and directness is always the most effective. Consider how an e natural and e double flat sounds, let alone looks. Technically a diminished unison on paper but having no aural relationship and certainly not practical.
    These days, I could easily justify a c and a c flat unison or similar to my own satisfaction, depending on their resolution and practicality for players.
    But it really isn't a unison anyway is it...
