    But in the case of Tamil, the non-existance of U+0BD7 wouldn't
    remove the disparity with written Tamil, it would only make the
    formulation more difficult.

    You can no longer say:
    U+0BD7 and U+0BB3 are indistinguishable in written Tamil

    but it would still hold, that:
    U+0B95 U+0BC6 U+0BB3 and
    U+0B95 U+0BCC
    are indistinguishable in written Tamil.
