Thanks for pointing this document. Initially I had incorrectly understood
that this was an extension of the Malayalam script.

But it appears now to be an extension of the Syriac script instead (used to
write a variant of the Malayalam language, but fully in the Syriac script
instead of the Malayalam Indic script, so OK it is fully RTL).

So OK the assignment in the RTL range (of the BMP) is correct (though it
could still have been in an RTL range of the SMP planes).

And this is clearly not a duplication of the existing Malayalam letters due
to the different properties). The encoding is justified.

I apologize.

Note: where is the ISO form containing the formal summary of
characteristics and justifications (the list of questions and checkboxes) ?
