That's an interesting point. However, based on the history that I know of, that
would be a different proposal. In other words, there is no proposal for any
"Yiddish FB1D" as a glyph variant. Only a straight precomposed combination,
with the same status as most of the other combinations of Hebrew letters, has
been proposed.
