Note that the *arithmetic* specification of the Hangul Syllable
canonical decompositions is just a short way of specifying the
decompositions. They CAN be listed, in a way *just like* the
other canonical decomposition mappings. It's just that the
listing is long and regular, and better expressed as arithmetic
expressions. They are not otherwise different (anymore). Some
used to have decomposition mappings into three other characters,
but their mappings have recently been changed to be to two other
characters, so that they fit with how other canonical decompositions
(and recompositions) are made. This change does not affect the
recursive decompositions of them, nor is any normal form
changed by this.
