Thank you for the feedback. I'd encourage you to update
comps if sil-scheherazade-fonts is somewhat better than
current result. also IMHO relying on the implicit behavior
may be a bad idea because it's unpredictable and may be
changed in the future. so even if it's not suitable for
serif and monospace but no candidate other than that, that
may be better than nothing perhaps.
