    Without any doubt, those fonts are tweaking the Unicode standard in a
    non-compliant way (but it was probably compliant before the Georgian script
    was reanalyzed and split into two separate scripts).

    So contact those font vendors so that they update their bogous fonts.
    And anyway, it would be good if some large font vendor supported this
    feature of the Georgian script.
