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 kimare 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.
