Isn't it problematic to have the distinction between (MIDDLE) HOOK and
DESCENDER for GHE (494/4F6), KA (4C3/49A) and arguably EN (4C7/4C9) but
not for PE?
That being said, I am not trying to beat the master of disunification
8-) If we agree that 4A6/7 is it, then we need at least an annotation
"can be rendered with a descender instead of a hook", or may be go all
the way for a change of the representative glyph to use a descender,
since that is the form used in both D&B and in the Abkhaz font.
