Whats the difference between a composite and a combining sequence?

http://www.unicode.org/unicode/reports/tr15/ mentions both
composites and combining sequences.

But it doesn't tell us the difference. I know what a combining
sequence is. If I didn't know what a composite was, I'd guess it
was the same thing as a combining sequence.

However, the two are meant to be different, so it can't be the same.

If I am getting the Unicode terminology correct, a combining
sequence is like a plain ASCII letter A, with the accent
