    This is perhaps a bit oversimplified. Processes that do searching and
    sorting on Unicode text should be able to work with text in any
    normalization form, converting to and from NFD as necessary. They
    shouldn't be constrained to operating correctly only on text that is
    already in NFD, which is the impression I got from Robert.
