    My experience suggests otherwise. In our day-to-day technical support for Keyman, up until the latest release, a large proportion of our technical support queries revolved around incorrect shaping -- ahead of "square boxes". In the latest release we cut this support load dramatically by including a licensed private version of usp10.dll (Uniscribe shaping engine) along with a management program that dynamically loads and translates calls from the system usp10 to our private one for consistent shaping in all applications. This was of course a particular issue in South and South East Asia.
