I noticed an issu ewith multiple glyphs but am not sure why ... (so we 
need very small examples to figure it out).

in the vertical feature one can tune a bit.

there are indeed limits

hm, i can have a look at it but we shouldn't break japanese and korean

once you finished all we can see how it can either be integrated or 
become some third party module (has to do with maintainance)

can you also make a noto typescript for the different chinese setups 
(for some reason the CJK noto's failed so i used the non CJK ones as i 
couldn't locate the right files; one cannot longher download al-of-noto 
in one zip )
