Great work! The accuracy of the Quran text is very important.

Well, the sequential tanween you are mentioning is not yet supported in Unicode as you probably know. So you have to handle this in a non-standard way. I guess it is a matter of what non-standard way to choose to do it. As far as I understand the shaping behaviour of the characters before and after a sequential tanween should not be any different than the shaping behaviour of the characters before and after a regular tanween. It just takes more space than a regular tanween so I guess there may be a little more difficulty in placing it correctly within the rendering. This gets complicated as I understand when more diacritics are added (shadda, etc). It is definitely not trivial work. May God help you with it.
