    No, Mark had it right. These two are canonically equivalent and therefore
    no normal Unicode process (including rendering) can treat them differently.
    That's a fact. If we want to change that situation, we can use a different
    encoding for one of the two renderings, or change the canonical-equivalence
    rules.
