BENGALI COMBINING KHANDA MODIFIER
A combining mark, which only applies to a TA baseform, and
which has the effect of reshaping the TA into a khanda-ta
form. How's that for an alternative?
Or, if you don't like that, we could have khanda-ta represented
by the sequence of Latin letters, <k,h,a,n,d,a,-,t,a> and
have the rendering engines and fonts remap that sequence
to the appropriate glyph.
