I agree that change of color should not mandate a joining break. On the other hand, a change of font, or a change of size in the same font, seems to make joining across the change very difficult technically. It would be quite extraordinary that letters from two fonts crafted by different designers join properly.
If the technical hurdle is such that there is little chance that implementations will overcome it, then it might be better to pronounce that there will be no joining across font or size changes.
