That may be inauthentic, in so far as the Tai Laing character is
'authentic'.  U+1050 and U+1051 are PA and GA with a diacritic,
necessary since the sibilant's glyphs started merging with PA and GA
and seen across many Indic scripts.  U+A9FD is PA with a
systematic diacritic, forging extra letters needed for Pali from an
authentic Shan base alphabet.  I'm not sure that there is any real need
to distinguish the two diacritics.
