locl feature

I'm making a sans serif with Bulgarian and Serbian glyphs available via locl feature. I've got a question here: since Macedonian before 1945 was considered a Bulgarian dialect, should it use Bulgarian glyphs? Or it is closer to Serbian?

In the new 2010 Microsoft Office fonts by Ascender I spotted a "dottediacute": An i with dot plus acute above, included in the locl feature for Lithuanian.

Has anyone an idea what's behind it?

Thanks,
Christoph

Locl features for Cyrillic

I try to create locl feature for Serbian and Bulgarian letters. But while working in FontLab, they don’t work both in Illustrator and InDesign (CS4). My initial feature code:

feature locl { # Localized Forms
# Latin
language MOL exclude_dflt; # Moldavian
sub Scedilla by uni0218;
sub scedilla by uni0219;
language ROM exclude_dflt; # Romanian
sub Scedilla by uni0218;
sub scedilla by uni0219;
script cyrl; # Cyrillic
language BUL exclude_dflt; # Bulgarian
sub @russ by @bulg;
language SRB exclude_dflt; # Serbian
sub afii10066 by b.serb;
} locl;

It works for Moldavian and Romanian, but doesn’t work for Bulgarian and Serbian.
Then I used lookups:

feature locl { # Localized Forms
# Latin
lookup locl1 {
sub Scedilla by uni0218;
sub scedilla by uni0219;
} locl1;
