Please don't muddy the semantics of this character. It is
clearly identified as:
in 8859-1 and in 10646.
It contrasts with:
U+0305 COMBINING OVERLINE
If people overload 0xAF MACRON in 8859-1 implementations to do box
drawing or overlining, that is up to them, but the intent and meaning
of the character in 8859-1 is now defined by reference to the
universal character standard, ISO/IEC 10646.
