In the case of Malgasy writing system (not Mayotte sorry) someone suggested
to me that it may be phonetically equivalent to U+0253, the sample I have is
« Kib-osi kimaôre en orthographe malgache » which means « Malgache de
Mayotte » (Mayotte being a French island off Madagascar). I will check the
actually value and usage of this b in Malgasy.
