All we wanted to know is that there were no other potential implosives unknown to us, this was not mentioned in the proposal.From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]OnBehalf Of Patrick AndriesIf the mark of implosivity were encoded as separate, then yes, you'd have to have to do extra work to get the fused forms.[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.There are no real benefits from encoding a separate combining mark, and I can assure you that the cost to implementations in dealing with the issues a combining mark would raise would not be trivial.
Okay, given the additional explanation (the alternative is not productive, the set of implosives is very small).Please, just encode four new characters.
