Certainly. But what if you want to display the content of Figure 10.8
(p. 270) in such a font? In that case, you can use ZWNJ to break up the
ligature. The first example could be written as <U+2FF1,
U+4E95,U+200C,U+86D9>, which cannot come out as a ligature.
Unfortunately, ZWNJ is not allowed in an IDS, so this will
produce the ill-formed IDS <U+2FF1,U+4E95>
Allowing ZWNJ/ZWJ in IDSes will allow the right rendering while
