«  Thus calling

i'm not sure about that. the term `ligature' has some flavour of
glyphic impurity in unicode's charachters world. Ligatures in Unicode
are typically in the `compatibility area'. I've finally have an answer
from a rather reliable source that AE being a letter was a political
choice that autorized it's presence in iso-latin1 whereas OE is not
yet fully back in its full dignity as a charachter required for french
spelling. From the same source, the distinction (between AE & OE) will
presist in latin9.
