> shaping in general carries on across ZWSP

I don't think this is particularly relevant. Shaping in general carries on across everything (including non-zero-width spaces as well). For a nice example, see the Awami Nastaliq font, for example (check the examples of "Diagonal Cluster Fitting" at http://software.sil.org/awami/what-is-special/).

The question here is only about whether ZWSP should be class T or U for the purposes of the Arabic Shaping property. This is unrelated to whether shaping (as a general mechanism) may take effect across it.
