Well, this solution will give us corrent output only in its appearance.

If "hiding default ignorable" means substituting by zero-width space,
then the pdf file produced by xetex would not contain U+115F and
U+1160, resulting in invalid text string when texts are extracted from
the pdf.

Only isolated filler may be ignored. Anyway this is illegal input string.
