Because of what is printed in OpenOffice.org, for instance.
You'll get ae_* in there which is not pretty.

I got the point, I'll fix that soon ISA.
BTW, I think arabeyes fonts in debian are broken because of this,
Arabic diacritic  marks break the letters apart which doesn't happen
in the original fonts in our tar ball. For unknown reason, to me at
least, when you edit those fonts in FontForge Arabic diacritic glyphs
get and advance width, which shouldn't happen. As a fix, use the
command SetWidth(0) to set the width of those glyphs to 0, this is
already done in the beta1.
