Aha! I had not realised this is possible. I will now have to see if I can 
figure out how to use Apple's font tools to add such features to some Devanagari 
font. If only there were an easy graphical interface for AAT tables. For many 
Indian languages such a glyph substitution mechanism to produce good line 
breaks would be ideal, for some types of poetry are riddled with long compound 
words giving TeX little interword space to stretch or shrink, and even the best 
hyphenation algorithm often fails. 

Many thanks for this clarification,
