You mean with ligatures?

The idea is that it can be easily disentangled if needed.

By the way, it certainly makes sense in the forthcoming documentation
of the LilyPond → SMuFL mapping to describe which glyphs are only
approximations based on similar shapes, and which ones are truly
identical.  In other words, please preserve all comments, probably
augmented with links to discussions, etc., etc.  It seems that this
project deserves a small database...
