No, the problem is not the positioning of the hiriq, which is easy to
control, but the re-ordering of the hiriq and patah due to the fact that
they are in separate combining classes, with the hiriq having a lower
number. This is 'a claimed problem', and as should be clear from much
previous discussion, far from everyone agrees with your suggestion that the
missing Yod be encoded in some way. So this is a live issue, and not one
that can simply be ignored because you've made up your mind what you think
the solution should be.

and as awesome, as great authors themselves.
