Example with and without stroke.png

DejaVu Serif, Sans and Mono contain all the character ſ (U+017F LATIN SMALL LETTER LONG S). These glyphs have a horizontal stroke.

Would it be possible to include (maybe as OpenType feature) an alternate form without a horizontal stroke? This could be useful for people that want to make sure that ſ cannot be confused with f.
