We've seen fonts which contain contextual lookups which refer to contextual lookups. This is not possible within VOLT for example.
Asked around, someone mentioned this font: Noto Nastaliq Urdu

http://behdad.org/urdu/
https://www.google.com/get/noto/#nastaliq-aran

Sure enough, it contains contextual lookups which refer to contextual lookups.

Can anyone point to other examples? What Latin fonts, if any, use this method?

[BTW: This font is problematic. Notes for discussion/support at some future point: i) Preview has difficulties rendering certain GSUB's; ii) mark, mkmk tables are worthless for practical applications involving vowels; etc.]
