Not necessarily so. I think it really is a big waste zone. Have you talked
to Thomas Milo lately? Decotype (those who kindly implemented all of the
ligatures to print the standard!) has really world-class Arabic support &
fonts. I don't think they're rushing out to supply all of these "useless"
ligatures to end-users, and I doubt they'd assert their usefulness.
