Arr, thanks. We have considered to put them below and above as well. But, white dot above the consonants just look too much like SARA AM (U+0E33) and if we put them below
black dot will look like PINTHU (U+0E3A). Both of them have already their functions in Thai language. So, it might be confusing rather than helping Pali in Thai script.

If possible we would like to keep them in the same place. That's why we put them there.
