I don't think so. Kerning belongs to a different subtable and is independent 
from scripts or languages. Also, the liga feature is defined for all character
combinations. For example, in  Garamond Premiere Pro the liga sub-subtable
includes the lambda_lambda and ffi ligatures. IMHO, separating these
things is an indication of poor design.
