Ligatures for Arabic (and Latin and Aramaic) are included as
compatibility characters and the expectation is that they should not
be used in actual texts. Unicode expects that ligatures will be
formed by the display engine and should not be explicitly encoded
except where necessary for reasons such as round-trip compatibility,
and even then only as compatibility characters.
