Are the merged punctuation marks available as separate characters?
I suspect not, in which case, your current method seems to be the  
only way to go about it at present. Some Asian fonts have half-width  
characters, but you'd still need a way to active the feature in this  
case. Ideally, the font would be clever enough to do this for you.
