Hi Steve,
and thanks for your very swift reply.

The reason for fixing italic "Iotated A" is to stay consistent with other "Iotation" letters.
This letters is usually used in Church Slavonic Wikipedia article, sometimes is marked italic style, but only a few font impelemented it, so this letterform will be useful for browsing their article. BTW I have also provided a draft for italic Zemlja (U+A641) and Dzělo (U+A643), because they have the same condition in Church Slavonic Wikipedia.

I've just noticed the italic and bold italic glyph for CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER IOTIFIED A looks just like a simple linking of ı and a, they are incorrect.

This Letter is a ligature of І and А, like the ancestor of Ю (І-ОУ ligature, dropping У) and Ѥ (І-Є ligature), for lowercase ю and ѥ, the shapes of stroke ends of ı designed pretty good in italic and bold italic feces, but ꙗ looks obviously different with them.
