Yes, that issue was decided.
The UTC decided to allow ZWJ/ZWNJ to occur in combining character
The UTC decided *not* to change the General Category of
ZWJ/ZWNJ, so their General Category will stay Cf, and not
shift to Mn.
The upshot of that is that the formal definition of
"combining character sequence" will need to be modified slightly
to account for the possible occurrence of ZWJ/ZWNJ in one.
Several other modifications will be made to data files to
makes things consistent for Unicode 4.0.1.
The Public Review Issues page will be updated soon with all the
resolutions of these issues from the UTC meeting last week.
