The uppercase and titlecase forms of the sequence "ij" in Dutch are
definitely "IJ". This is as well documented as the casing conventions
surrounding Turkish "i". This should definitely be proposed as a change
In fact, solving problems like this in the proper Unicode way might go a
long way toward convincing the Dutch contingent that the need for U+0132
and U+0133 is overstated.
