Many of the very low codepoints are defned for compatibility reasons
(e.g. all the accented characters, which can all be represented as
the base letter + combining diacritics). Of course a fraktur font
may decide to represent all s except the ending-s as long-s (where
"ending" may be in the middle of concatenated words).
