This is an example of stating something that can be read in two ways -
unfortunatly you took an unintended meaning :-(
Re-iterating in reverse should get the point across, I hope:
I think that a ZWNJ would imply that Ra and Ya should not join together.
But I remembered that in some font designs Ra and Ya *do* join together
(they make a ligature.)
Therefore Ra+ZWNJ+Virama+Ya cannot represent Ra+Yaphalaa when they form
