I know that the vowel signs do not interact with each other typographically, but
what's that got to do with anything ? I'm talking about the logical ordering of
the Unicode codepoints used to encode some Tibetan text, not the physical
appearance of the glyphs that are used to render that sequence of codepoints.
What I'm suggesting is that although "cui" <0F45, 0F74, 0F72> and "ciu" <0F45,
0F72, 0F74> should be rendered identically, the logical ordering of the
codepoints representing the vowels may represent lexical differences that would
be lost during the process of normalisation.
