This looks good, except when 'ss07' is enabled.

In FreeSans, 'ss07' transforms the ligature into ⟨ஶீர⟩.

In FreeSerif, 'ss07', transforms the ligature into ⟨ஶரஈ⟩.

FreeSerif Bold is fine: the ligature is formed, even with 'ss07'.

This ligature should now be present in serif regular and bold, and sans regular.

You're right.

This is part of a re-work I'm doing on the Tamil tables.
(In serif regular, it's already fixed.)

In FreeSerif, ⟨ஶ்ரீ⟩ is not a ligature. The substitution is from shaTaml pulliTaml raTaml ii_Taml; it should instead be from shaTaml pulliTaml taml_ra_combo_clscl ii_Taml.
