There's nothing bad in adding more properties to characters, this is the job
of Unicode not the job of ISO, even if those properties only apply to a
specific script. There are precedents in Unicode itself for Arabic and
Hangul (joining types). I don't say that these properties have to be
normative (for conformance levels), but that informative properties are good
as well (there are many in the Unicode standard).
