See the FAQ at http://www.unicode.org/faq/middleeast.html -- Arabic
presentation forms should be avoided.
What FAQ page doesn't say, but perhaps should, is that modern computer
programs and fonts work together to automatically select the correct
contextual forms and ligatures when you code your Arabic using the U+0600
.. U+06FF characters.

Subject: Arabic Characters for Kurdish are missing
I would like to suggest to add some - until now still - missing characters
for Arabic Kurdish:
1. There are no FINAL forms for U-0692 (REH WITH SMALL V) and U-0995 (REH
WITH SMALL V BELOW)
2. There are no FINAL, INITIAL and MEDIAL forms for U-06B5 (LAM WITH SMALL
3. There are no FINAL and ISOLATED forms for LAM WITH ALEF WITH SMALL V
ABOVE like in U-FEF5 and U-FEF6 ff.
4. There are no FINAL, INITIAL and MEDIAL forms for U-06CE (YEH WITH SMALL
These characters are necessary to write Kurdish in Arabic script. And if
these characters would be added to Unicode programming would be easier.
