The discussion on Ajami characters has continued off line and on other groups. There are apparently some extended Arabic character/diacritic proposals in the Unicode process, though Paul tells me that one by Jonathan Kew is mainly for minority languages in Pakistan. At some point it would be helpful to begin collating the various observations re Ajami special characters in the region, along the lines of what is being attempted for Latin-based ones via A12n-collaboration (and the A12n gateway page). The idea would be to bring into a common public space the information individuals have and indeed may have published separately regarding specific language usages (what modified Arabic characters & diacritics are used for what sounds in what languages).
