It also may be interesting to see what happens if you add `color` styles, although I *think* the result will be similar.

I believe Gecko's approach (which @rocallahan implemented initially) involves estimating the boundary within the ligature based on the advances of the pre-ligature glyphs, although I'm not sure if this is still the case.  It would be interesting to know if there are font metrics that could help with finding the boundary more accurately.

I think the working group has discussed this issue at least once in the past.
