Souvenir's somewhat bending strokes lend nicely to create characters for Latin-Roman/Greek/Cyrillic, but present quite a challenge when designing characters for Hebrew/Arabic/Syro-Aramaic/Devanagari... .

this is surely an interesting matter but no one within the scope of the Unicode disc. list. You may wish to turn to the Typedrawers.com forum, where font design issues can get forwarded to a well-prepared audience.
