    It still appears to me that requesting virama to be visible is mostly
    orthogonal to requesting a reordrant vowel to "reorder less".
    If they are (mostly) orthogonal, there should be different ways
    of requesting them, rather than conflating two (mostly) orthogonal

    Further, I think this is a "behavioural" issue, rather than just an
    implementation issue. There should be a common (read standard)
    way of dealing with this, at the character sequence level, independent
    of how the implementations are built.
