Is this true:
"Dutch 'ij' is (besides its special casing rule) by no means more a
'single character' than e.g. Slovak 'ch'. It is encoded in Unicode
only for historic reasons (like backward compatibility).
In the era of automatic ligating (OpenType etc.), no Dutch speaker
really needs U+0132/U+0133 or misses an 'ij' key on their keyboard."
