This question is a complement to this other: Overview of Arabic fonts available for LaTeX/XeTeX?

I'm working on Arabic justification for babel+luatex (see this Tweet) and I'm looking for fonts with the jalt OpenType table (justification alternatives). I've found Arabic Typesetting and Sakkal Majalla (it looks like Waseem has it, but it's a Mac font and right now I don't have a Mac at hand).

Do you know any more fonts?

    Aref Ruqaa, such as it is, is doing something in the jalt space. The only one out of two dozen I checked. Seems a rare feature.

    A different approach is to use a variable font axis for kashida, as in Estedad, which is open-source.
