Well, if a script had such behaviour, one possibility could be to propose a
combining CONSONANT SIGN L for what we would be choosing to think of as a
dependent form of the consonant. I.e. it may not be in an existing model,
but for a new script one could create a new model. I hear you saying,
though, that you think it would be preferable to fit this into the existing
model that uses a virama.
