    Would it help if some precomposed ligatures were included into regular Unicode?

    I am thinking that if they could be defined in plane 14, perhaps as semi-deprecated characters not to be used for interchange and not having decompositions defined yet available so that displays could be more easily produced, then maybe that would resolve the problem without causing any problems over producing other problems elsewhere.
