It could be a combination of both.  

However, we will need to look at the Unicode character properties to be able
to respond.  For example, if Quranic characters are distinctly labelled as
such then they can be separated out through the algorithm, but if they are
just have the property of combining marks then through the exception list,
of course.

Let ASIWG look at this and get back to you.
