[luatex] bug in RTL typesetting?

There are two things I find weird:

1) why do you slant Arabic script to the right??? It's like slanting  
Latin script to the left, which is quite ugly

2) why do you use a circle for the zero and not a centered lozange- 
shaped dot as it is traditional in Arabic?

You should read Azzeddine's work on typesetting Arabic mathematics, he  
did his PhD on this.
