Consolidated Feedback & Observations on Draft Devanagari Script Behaviour Ver 1.4.9
two short vowels ऎ,ऒ should be included
by Shree Devi Kumar on Nov 08 2013
Short E/O are not really “for Dravidian transliteration” only, but were originally introduced by Hoernle for the Bihari languages
Bhojpuri, Magadhi and Maithili"
Please see:

As per LSI by Grierson, Bihari and Awadhi "As in Bihari, there is a short e as well as a long one, and a short o as well as o. Also a short at and a short au."

" As in other Bihari dialects, the vowels e and o , and the diphthongs ai and au have each two sounds, a short and a long one. Accurate writers distinguish these when writing in the Deva-nagari character, "
