Could it be a variant half-form of U+CB5 KANNARA LETTER VA, so that the composed letter would be a missing LETTER KVA? Or could it beanimport from U+D28 MALAYALAM LETTER NA, so that the combination shown would be a missing KANNARA LETTER KNA (which interestingly matches the name of the Kannara script when the first small a sound is not pronounced) ?
> * a complex letter or symbol at U+0CF3 (looks like U+0C9C KANNARA LETTER JA with a combining diacritic below, similar to a small U+C9E KANNARA LETTER NYA): is the composite effectively a missing KANNARA LETTER JNYA?
> * a J-shaped diacritic (quite similar to U+0C43 TELUGU VOCALIC COMBINING R), combining on the right and below the dashed circle. Given that there's currently no VOCALIC R in the current Kannaraencoding but only a VOCALIC RR, am I right here ?
> * a F-shaped diacritic, combining on the right of the sample dashed circle (looks much like a variant of U+0CEF KANNARA DIGIT NINE). Could it be a variant of the existing VIRAMA (or halant)?
Forget my questions here: it seems they are already proposed and accepted by Unicode one year ago, and in final stage for standardization:
0CF1..0CF2 KANNADA SIGN JIHVAMULIYA, KANNADA SIGN UPADHMANIYA
0CE2..0CE3 KANNADA VOWEL SIGN VOCALIC L, KANNADA VOWEL SIGN VOCALIC LL
