[PA] Given what the Devanagari rendering engines already do (conjuncts,
virama, handling of ra), this may not be such a problem if they were
benefits to encoding a productive separate combining mark.

[PA] Thank you for these precisions, which I think should have been in
the proposal : a combining mark will not be very productive here since
the set of implosives does not seem to be open.
