Yes, of course. E.g., I guess that the ZWJ "glyph" can be a pseudo-index
which doesn't actually index anything.

The next step could be standardizing the values of the glyph indexes, so
that the entire "GSUB"/"morx" table can be copied in from a template, and
type designers can concentrate on drawing the outlines.
