Isn't it the other way around? Just the "mandatory" ligatures are no problem
at all. If a font requires use of a ligature for each occurence of "ct",
modern font technology will happily do this substitution whenever the two
characters "c" and "t" occur adjacently in the text.
It gets a little bit more complicated when both ligature and non-ligature
occur and the author wants to control this.
