Actually, the common wisdom about Latin ligatures is to avoid the
presentation forms and to use whatever ligature controls your rich-
text system provides. ZWJ is "designed for marking the unusual cases
where ligatures...are required. [It is] not to be used in all cases
where ligatures...are desired; instead, [it is] meant only for
overriding the normal behavior of text." (TUS p. 537) And yes,
Armenian is the same.
