This letter name is really confusive, because letters named "WITH
RING" imply a detachable ring combining above the base letter, not a
ring like this attached on the right side, on the baseline.
Could'nt it be named instead:

U+AB4C LATIN SMALL LETTER SCRIPT R WITH BASELINE RING ON RIGHT

Or something similar ? (Note that I've seen it also using not a ring
but a curl at the same position but crossing backward the baseline
again and going then a bit below the baseline, or with an unclosed
curl terminated before crossing the baseline and before reaching the
right stem. in that case it would be more appropriate to name it:

U+AB4C LATIN SMALL LETTER SCRIPT R WITH RIGHT CURL

Also the glyph proposed is not what I call a "SCRIPT" version of the
small r, its shape is roo much rectangular and orthogonal, its right
stem should be more oblique, the upper left corner should show a small
upper dip (or tiny loop), and the upper right corner should be also
rounded instead of a corner. This should also apply to

U+AB4B LATIN SMALL LETTER SCRIPT R (without the baseline right on right)
