One of the goals of the Noto project is to include all characters in Unicode. 
That's why we include U+06D2 in the Malayalam fonts. You are not required to 
use the character. The glyphs are there for people who use the character.

Cibu, would you please comment on the dotted forms of consonants? Unicode 
doesn't seem to say anything about them.

Dotted characters are for music notations. That is as good as we could do it, 
unless Unicode defines a different combining marks for low and high octaves in 
Carnatic music - quite unlikely.
