Which kind of implications do you refer to?
The proposed variation sequences simply provide a more general access to
typographic details, which now can be accomplished by more complicated
means like implementing locale-specific glyph selection within a font,
and relying on a higher-level protocol supplying the correct locale
information. (Anyway, such means may stay in effect in parallel to
the use of variation sequences.)
One of the advantages of variation sequences is that the glyph
selection is transparent to the user, instead of to be implemented in
each font in a non-standardized way.
