    Thank you for the clarification, mostly snipped to save bandwidth. This
    confirms what I had thought, that the issue is not in fact serious. An
    objection had been made to my Holam proposal using ZWNJ that it implied
    that the two Holams could not be distinguished even in a tailored
    collation, but I am glad that that objection doesn't stand up.

    But I think this does mean that the words "by default" ought to be added
    to the following on TUS p.111:
