  I'd say the caveat I mentioned about ZWNJ also holds for CGJ:
processing this character is partly the responsibility of the font, not
only of the typesetting engine.  The example with the Hebrew vowel and
cantillation marks from the Wikipedia page (taken from the Unicode
Standard) shows exactly that.  It would be quite error-prone to try and
handle it at the macro level exclusively, in my opinion.
