I believe that users would find that unacceptable. They have no interest in
how the glyph for LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH ACUTE is represented in a
computer (precomposed character or combining sequence) and would expect to
have them be equivalent.
Please verify what is happening.

Only the XNS people could be authoritative, but my personal impression is
that since combining accents are in the "Mn" category, I don't think they
would count, so the latter would just be small letter e and the two would
not be equivalent.
