    request ZWJ (and perhaps even a good reason to not include it, according to

    A similar case are Malayalam 'cillu' (or 'chillu'); while the UTC does not
    have a firm position yet like in the Bengali case, there are enough
    probabilities it would, to delay decision about including ZWJ based on this
    case alone.

    I am not saying ZWJ should not be included, just that if you want it to be
    included, you should find other cases than those two.
