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).
