I did some web search on this topic and found[1] that, those ZWJs
were artifacts of convertions from ISCII to Unicode. 

It seem to me that consonant + halant + ZWJ == half consonent
(valid for those 5 half consonants (chillaksharam)) should be
supported. May be emacs-unicode hackers have something to say on
