    The point I'm trying to make is that rather then investigating every possible ligature in Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Coptic, Gothic etc., trying to figure whether it is a mere stylistic variation or distinct character in each particular orthography variation, and then encoding them as recomposed characters in the latter case, we could just provide a standard mechanism of encoding any arbitrary ligature (like the standard mechanism we have for applying any arbitrary diacritics to any arbitrary letter).
