No, that's a glyph ligation matter however you look at it. It could be made
to work with either just a left meteg or also with a new right meteg, and
can be inhibited with ZWNJ. This is not to say that I think encoding a
distinct right meteg character is the best solution, only that it doesn't
affect the medial meteg shaping.

If you browse in the shelves that, in American bookstores,
are labeled New Age, you can find there even Saint Augustine,
who, as far as I know, was not a fascist. But combining Saint
Augustine and Stonehenge -- that is a symptom of Ur-Fascism.
