Mark, can you outline what these mechanisms are or point me to a
definition e.g. in a section of UTR #10? As I had understood it, the
only way to deal with sequences of the sort I have in mind is to list
each possible individually as a contraction. The Logical_Order_Exception
property (see section 3.1.3) just
might be useful, but doesn't seem to have the necessary flexibility as
it causes a character to be swapped with ANY following character, not
just with any of a restricted list of such characters. The backwards
marking used for French accents (section 3.1.2) seems to apply over too
long a string.
