I believe that this character is a composition of TA (U+09A4) and the
ZERO-WIDTH JOINER, the so-called "half-consonant", as opposed to being a
separate character.

It probably should. However, historically the script has been called
Bengali in English, and this is how the name was assigned. I can't
remember the policies about script naming, but I believe this is not as
inflexible as other aspects of the standard.
