    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?

    --Ken ;-)

    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.
