RE: conjucts beginning with independent vowel?

In Bengali Vowel_A can form a conjunct with letter_Ya (Ya taking its zophola form.)

It has been suggested that this should be encoded as Vowel_A ZWJ Ya

I believe that the series V ZWJ C is much more logical than V Virama C as the semantics of virama are to suppress the vowel.
