Yes, if it supports all characters. And you would have to "divide"  
this font into "sub-font" instances to be able to use the script  
depending font features. This is not bad, because you would have to  
use different language environments to use their proper hyphenation  
etc. rules in any way. And you would have to declare writing direction  
when it changes from default left-to right.
