I have read and reread the forum post to which you refer.
I cannot understand from that text, or otherwise at the time of writing this reply, why it would not be possible to have an alternate ending glyph for a letter e accessible from plain text using an advanced font technology font (for example, an OpenType font) using the two character sequence U+0065 U+FE0F.
The specific design of an alternate ending e glyph would vary from font to font, yet that it is an alternate ending e would be clear: the encoding U+0065 U+FE0F would allow the intention that an alternate ending glyph for a letter e is requested to be carried within a plain text document.
I accept that I might be missing something here. If so I would be happy to learn: at the moment, however, it still seems to me to be a good idea for an encoding.
