It should work: Uniscribe inserts the U+25CC glyph that is in the font, so this could be
something other than an actual dotted circle. Another option would be to map the dotted
circle to a non-contour spacing glyph in one of the discretionary OpenType Layout features
such as <salt>, which would allow users of apps supporting that feature (currently only
InDesign ME, so far as I know) to choose whether or not to display the circle.
