    You may need also this other reference which justifies the need for early
    normalization and how it should be used in XML applications:

        Requirements for String Identity Matching and String Indexing,
        W3C Working Draft.

    (Notably its part 3 and its Appendix which lists DOM and URIs as using this
    W3C CharReq specification, and why you can't in fact avoid NFC normalization
    when processing XML documents.)
