We also have that ligature in handwriting. But it's
really hard for me to think of that thing being
Kaf-Alef. The left part has more slope than an Arabic
writer can think of for an Alef. There's a sense
the Alef you know.

And about the Persian fonts, yes, there's rarely any
ligature other than Lam-Alef. People don't like
ligatures in print.
