it's very likely that nobody in the team has enough skills in those language to to make them accessible in a good way.

would you be able to help out in defining the interface?

do you know somebody who could help?

I think Ken Lunde ( would help, he has participated in two famous CJK font projects: Source Han Sans and Source Han Serif, both of them are well constructed for CJK text layout.

if the font has these features, it will appear in Font Features dialog. Is that not enough ?

No, when I choose Source Han Serif for a text, some of them such as 'pwid', 'hwid' not shown in Font Features dialog.
