Padding works best where grapheme clusters are about the same width

3.6 Zero-Padding and Constant-Width Representations: the pad descriptor

It may be worth adding a note to say that this padding works best where the grapheme clusters used are generally about the same width. If you tried this with, say, the persian-alphabetic counter-style the variations in character width would probably defeat the aim of padding.

(Similarly, in some Indic scripts where grapheme clusters are not equivalent to syllables I suppose it could also be a problem, though I think it's unlikely that people with use syllables and padding for those indic script counter styles.)

Related notes:

I'm withdrawing this issue as it's probably a bit esoteric.
