    If you like it or not - the fact that Unicode implementation matches
    (in 0BB3/0BD7 case) or even only seem to match (all dependent
    vowels postfix) the goals of the script reform faction, is repeatedly
    used as argument pro script reform. If Tamil had been coded
    as Thai, matching actual use, that argument would be void.
