In that case, what about U and V? Kaf and Keheh, although originally
different shapes of one Arabic letter, are used as separate letters in
some languages of Pakistan, and the users of those languages are the
group of common users who recognise the distinction. U and V are
originally different shapes of one Latin letter, and the distinction
between them is also generally recognised by a group of common users,
i.e. users of English and most other modern Latin script languages. But
do we take U and V as different presentation forms of one character?
Should one of them be only in the PUA? Surely not.
