    I don't see how this would be useful: as I understand it, Uniscribe won't
    know anything about these characters, so it won't do any reordering or
    apply any OT tags, hence there won't be any complex behaviour.

    I take this must mean "assumed bidi class R" or "AL". I can see some
    usefulness to this (though, again, Uniscribe won't be able to apply the
    tags needed for Arabic cursively-connecting forms). But if you do this,
    please provide a UI that allows users to toggle the particular range
    between "assumed bidi class R" (or whatever it is) and the default
    assumptions for PUA codepoints.
