    Not exactly nightmares, but the Tamil case does
    cause some mapping discomfort.

    About three out of five 7bit/8bit encodings for Tamil
    have these two Unicode codepoints unified. And at
    least one of the dis-unified ones did the dis-unification
    exactly for Unicode interoperability.

    So in effect, Unicode handling of this case, may actually
    change Tamil use - I've already seen proposals to
    a script reform dis-unifying the glyphs.
