Dear Andrew,
If I understood right, this form will added with new FVS sequence.
As already discussed under 
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-i18n-mongolian/2015OctDec/0052.html 
this form is popular in Mongolia.
As Siqin's answer, this form doesn't exist in inner Mongolia. 
(https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-i18n-mongolian/2015OctDec/0059.html) 
Thus, it is probably not considered in Chinese Standards.
