And rightly so. I don't expect decompositions to do the right thing
for sorting, and in other languages U+00E6 is *not* replaceable by
"ae". Likewise, it would be bad to give "ue" as a decomposition for
U+00FC, since that works only in German, But

is globally true, since only German uses this letter.
