It seems to me, as I've seen from the Table 9-1 of Unicode standards,
consonant + halant + ZWJ is used to form the half form of the
consonants.  Is it common to use these characters in Malayalam?  I
thought that the glyphs shown in Table 9-1 is only used in language
textbooks and not at the common usage.  

Anyway, I thinkg it is easy to support them if the appropriate
corresponding glyphs are already prepared in indian-glyph.  I think it
is just add the new entries for them in mlm-char-glyph variable, isn't
