John Hudson has written an insightful proposal covering the rôle
of the ZWJ character for ligature control in OpenType.

Ultimately, default text processing behaviour will be determined
on a case-by-case basis by the various applications. Hopefully,
everyone will be able to choose applications which meet their needs.
