    Yes. But it is not quite clear how this should interact with combining
    that aren't purely 'above' or 'below' a single character (in horizontal
    writing): in
    particular double diacritics (<SPACE, dbl diacritic> or <SPACE, dbl
    diacritic, SPACE>
    to get an isolated one?), and left-side or right-side combining
    (<SPACE, rightside comb. char> does that give unwanted space on the left
    or not?).
