This is already addressed: lowercase j is "soft-dotted" meaning that its default
dot disappears when there's a diacritic above it, and this includes the
combining dot above.
So <j, combining dot above> is not canonically or compatibility equivalent to
<j>, but both normally look the same when rendered, and the difference that is
invisible in lowercase, comes back to visible when converted back to uppercase.
So the semantic is preserved...
