Compatibility decompositions aren't necessarily meant to cover everything
that a character might be considered equivalent to.

We also don't give a compatibility decomposition of "ae" for U+00E6 LATIN
SMALL LETTER AE, even though for sorting in many languages it is treated
equivalent to "a+e", just as SHARP S is treated as equivalent to
a modified "s+s".
