Once a botch is implemented then others will sure follow. Replacing you
original botch with yet another will make the encoding model into
nothing other than a hack. Seeing as "one would like corroboration",
there seems is no point in me wasting time by going into details.
IMHO, TUS needs solid rules; Exceptions, hacks, patches, or workarounds
should definitely be avoided wherever possible. (If you care to look
back in the mailing list archives a few years, you will see that the
"a+Virama+Ya+aa" kludge was originally proposed as a workaround due to
the lack of a separate encoded letter)
