I don't have real experience with this issue, but as an ex user of
weft for Tamil fonts, I know that its usage seems to be font
dependent, not because it is too complicated, but because the font
doesn't allow embeding.

How to go around this...I don't know.

But is the WEFT way really necessary today? Or is it because of the
different shapes that you need to use WEFT?
