Yes and no.

No if you are asking for a small, obvious example.

Yes in the following way:
- take a use case for text set with discretionary ligatures
- take a use case for text set without discretionary ligatures
- embed the later in the former

IMHO, the cascading nature of CSS implies that every time you have a way 
to turn something on, you should also have a way to turn it off (and 
only it). Otherwise composition becomes difficult.
