    I'm of the opinion that conventions that use characters of
    general category Cf are best documented in the standard. Otherwise,
    a consistent treatment of such characters across implementations
    depends too much on context (e.g. use of a particular font).

    "Fine typography" issues for other characters, incl. combining
    are a different matter. These will legitimately differ even
    among uses of the same character (viz. math and text handling
    of accents, for example).
