But I prefer something other than "reordering", because that doesn't
really seem to be the catch term for Indic. Indic is, well, Indic. Or
maybe Brahmic. Reordering, split-positioning, conjoining forms and
ligatures -- these are what characterize Indic. What single term can
be appropriate to cover all of them without prejudice to another?
