Hi Behdad,

When (accidentally) testing fonts that has no OpenType tables with
vocalized Arabic text, the fallback glyph positioning gives a funny
Tetris-like patterns. I like it :) but may be HarfBuzz should give up on
fallback positioning if the mark will end up as .notdef.

See the attached image using a special version of Libertine:
