Adapted from MAPS:
If more glyphs could be added it would be perfect. Particularly interesting
and easy are: U0679, U0688, U0691, U06C7. Those need a bit more design:
U06BA, U06D2, U06D5. With those 7 extra characters it would also cover Urdu.
Please, behdad ask your team to add these 7 glyphs. This would be very
valuable to all distros. It shouldn't be a lot of work.
Thanks a lot
