Not if my proposal gets accepted

To make things clear
In general I propose that:
1. To+hoshonto should be rendered as Khondoto as the norm. (The Halant
2.  If a following letter naturally legates with Ta, then let the
conjunct form be displayed.
3.  Exceptions should be treated as such. So for sequences that need
khondoTo to be displayed (as apposed to a conjunct form) let's stop To
and a following letter from being joined with a ZWNJ. (such words as
kutsit could then get an ikar in the right place).
4. Finally, let the behaviour of ZWJ be as is stated in the standard and
not as in the FAQ i.e. for all Indic scripts, ZWJ is for the formation
of a half form (the half form could be to.hosonto or whatever a font
designer thinks is right for a halfTo).

I have submitted this proposal to the Unicode mailing list for general
discussion. I suggest that if you have any strong objections to the
proposal you let them be known before it's to late.

Best wishes
