No, it is not directly a common convention. I looked through the wikipedia pages for farsi/arabic transliteration and used that as a basis.

Very sorry for the late response, and thank you for the contribution. Is your transliteration based on any standard (or widely accepted convension)? If so, please give me a pointer.

I even made a nice icon (merge of fa-isiri.png and dv-phonetic.png). ;)

Since I use a latin keyboard, I needed a Farsi transliteration input method. Attached file is what I came up with. It is probably incomplete, badly named (since it is not actually phonetic) and may be even wrong / unusual in some cases, but it works for me.
