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
