Unicode 4.0 was released a few weeks ago and it enumerates
'Default_Ignorable_Code_Point's at 

It clarifies some of problems not resolved before. For instance,
it tells us  which of Mongolian variation selectors are ignorable 
(actually, the other day I found that Unicode 3.0 explained which are

ZWJ/ZWNJ are not there because they have 'visual' effects on most cases, but
blank glyph list may/should keep including characters like that as it does now.
So, fontconfig blank glyph list will be a union of 'default_ignorable' and
some other characters.
