Behdad, as I said, Unicode only considers those characters as nuktas
and allots CCC=7 to them which are consonant modifiers.
If you want we can take this to the Unicore list and see what Peter
Constable of Microsoft has to say. If what I understand about
Microsoft unilaterally formulating the OpenType specification is true,
I don't think it is very "open" of them to do so.
