For ligatures and certain compounds i understand that this can become difficult, but i don't want to close out the possibility of allowing mark highlighting where it _can_ be useful.

Sure, there are things that are more difficult, and my assumption is that content authors are not likely to try mark colouring in those situations. But highlighting signs as shown here for devanagari is not an extraordinary ask, and should continue to be feasible, given an appropriate font:

Basically, i want to avoid throwing out the baby with the bath water.
