    That would, of course, cause problems - but it doesn't sound to me like the
    poser of the question had that in mind. He/she was explicitly using ICU to
    do normalisation, and noticed that the O/S is not doing normalisation, and
    seemed to be saying that this causes a problem _now_.

    Suppose his program consistently used an un-normalised string.

    And then suddently the operating system started to normalise everything it
    got from his program before using it.
