    I like to think of the long s as similar to the final sigma. Nobody
    thinks that final sigma should be a presentation form of sigma.

    Nobody really uses long s in modern Roman typography, and it's a lot
    more convenient to have this as a separate character for the
    nonce-uses that it has than to expect font designers round the world
    to add special shaping tables to all their fonts just for this
