Could a variant mark (cf. recent minutes) be used to invoke the eyelash RA
and thus resolve the current 'double duty' usage of ZWJ in Unicode 2.0: 1.
at figure 6-15 (page 6-37) for independent half forms, and, 2. at R5 (page
6-39) for the eyelash-RA? This is not a stylistic/glyph variation, it
depends on grammar and pronounciation, neither of which are a focus
of Unicode.
