I think my point (with the exception of my opposition to the whole
idea of mirroring effect) is in accordance with your point. And my
opposition to mirroring effect doesn't count anyway.

Now I understand the issue better. But the usage of ornate
parenthesis is very much linked to Koranic expression and heavily
tailored fonts for that purpose. I think it would be a de-service to
change its behaviour at this stage for narrow and specific focus that
its usage has. But this is something that people who actually made
fonts and applications for Koranic expression should evaluate and I
am not one of them.
