I agree completely that a ZWJ between an f and an i should be treated as
a request to ligate, and conversely that a ZWNJ should be treated as a

It has been stated here repeatedly that ZWJ and ZWNJ should be
exceptional overrides only, not sprinkled throughout ordinary text to
achieve ordinary ligation.
