If, OTOH, there is a diacritic that does modify the consonant and looks
different from the present nukta, it should be separately encoded also
with CCC=7. I personally have seen experimental usage of a double-dot
nukta (a la Kannada) with Devanagari DDA for indicating a particular
Vedic consonant, but since the usage never caught on (and I am
considering better alternatives), I didn't propose it to be encoded.
