I remember specifically testing some Nastaliq fonts and Hans fixing some
small issues I found, I just tested again now and IranNastaliq seems to
work (my fork of Nafees Nastaleeq is broken though, but it uses an
OpenType GDEF feature not supported by LuaTeX's font loader, so this is
expected and not even Arabic specific).
