Tamil transliteration convention for ழ

Description

I do see a potential ambiguity due to using L (ள்) for lateral and the retroflex continuent (ழ்).

11FE0 TAMIL SIGN KULI (குழி) may be ambiguously read! So also, 11FE1 TAMIL SIGN VEELI(வேலி).

The former should be KUZI and the later should be VEELI (as it is).

There are other similar cases due to using L for ழ.

Following may be reconsidered by replacing L with Z instead

1FD3TAMIL SIGN AAZAAKKU
11FE0 TAMIL SIGN KUZI
1FD5 TAMIL SIGN MUUVUZAKKU
11FD0 TAMIL FRACTION DOWNSCALING FACTOR KIIZ

In our earlier submissions Tamil Nadu government did agree to the proposal to use either Z or ZH for the retroflex continuent letter ழ். We may as well follow the earlier consensus on this matter.
