CGJ-insertion is the Unicode-approved method for preventing canonical re-ordering of
marks, so it certainly isn't a hack in that sense. Whether the results are visually ugly
depend on how the layout engine handles that CGJ and what the given font does when
presented with the resulting glyph string. There's no reason why it couldn't be made to
look correct and not ugly, but it requires a level of fastidiousness about mark
positioning that, so far, most font developers have not pursued.
