" I can see why an expectation that color (or underlining) should not affect shaping is both reasonable and useful. 
For generalized font and style breaks, I think it would be enough to recommend that these are not intended to break shaping runs.
How would you handle the lam-alif ligature, if it had a font or style break between the two letters?"

I will add that even a color change, which appears to us as reasonable and useful, is not so easy to realize when done between  lam and alif.
