    Food for thought: How would you compare U+0133 ("ij" digraph) with
    U+044B (cyrillic "y", "yery")?

    Consider that the latter also consists graphically of two separate
    letters: U+044A (hard sign) and U+0456 (old "i") -- though the first
    looks rather like U+044C (soft sign). This is an obvious difference,
    but everything else seems quite comparable. Except nobody in this list
    is making a big fuss about having included U+044B in the standard was
    such a bad idea... ;-)
