Ooh, I hadn’t really thought of this before... how much work would it
take to use this code to enable Latin ligatures (fi, fl, etc.) when the
typeface supports them?  I currently handle this in XSLT and it’s a
PITA, and also lacks information about actual typeface support for
advanced ligatures (ffi, ct, etc.).
