Unicode: Redefining AU length marker U+0D57

Current meaning of the two AU signs are described below:

0D4C MALAYALAM VOWEL SIGN AU

0D57 MALAYALAM VOWEL SIGN AU - RIGHT PART ALONE
This assignment of meaning to these symbol causes lots of confusion. Also, it can potentially violate Uniqueness Rule when people interchangably use 0D4C and 0D57 to denote AU symbol in new orthography.

Following are the possible solutions for this:
  1. Deprecate 0D57 and loose the facility to display right part alone in an old orthography font.
  2. Make 0D57 something like a joiner which is typically transparent to automated tools like search engines. U+0D57 will have meaning only when it is followed by U+0D47 and that combination will suppress the left part ofU+0D47, irrespective of the font.
