Hi David,

I acknowledge that the low macron modifier should lie on the baseline in Lisu. (The rest is stylistic I guess.)

It's unfortunately a bit messy to add a new script to the lookups. I'll think about it.

In FreeSans, U+02CD MODIFIER LETTER LOW MACRON is below the baseline, as it should be. In Lisu (OpenType script tag 'lisu'), however, it should be at the baseline and should look different. The examples in the proposal document (http://www.unicode.org/L2/L2008/08019-lisu.pdf) show that in Lisu U+02CD should look like the horizontal stroke of ⟨ꓡ⟩; i.e. it should be longer, thicker, and higher than the current glyph.
