    Of course there is (some). Otherwise you would use only one font.

    The current comment in TUS 5.0 is "ogonek form preferred". You may
    want to suggest changing that comment (as well as the chart glyph).

    One odd thing with a "nearby" letter, though one not used in Abkhasian,
    is one of the comments on U+04AB, CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER ES WITH DESCENDER:

    * letterforms with right hooks are preferred, although occasional
            variants with left hooks occur

    But the chart glyphs (upper- and lowercase) still have a LEFT hook,
    which is said to be just occasional and not preferred... I think it
    would be better if the chart glyphs used the preferred form...
