We had the same issue with the masora circle mark in Hebrew. The work 
around in that case was that a user could choose to have the mark 
positioned between two letters, instead of the default positioning over 
the preceding letter, by inserting a ZWNJ control character before the 
mark.* I'm doubtful that would work in a more complex script in which 
ZWNJ might have a defined shaping role.
