I'm not sure this particular argument proves what you want it to prove.
In English you cannot insert a hyphen between the T and H in "bother,"
or between the S and H in "fishing." But that says nothing about
whether the two characters are considered a single letter in English, or
whether they should or must be written as a ligature. Your other
arguments are more convincing.
