    This should not be a small square; it should be identical to U+00B7 to
    which it is canonically equivalent.

    Surely U+05BC doesn't have inherent directionality? I thought that
    combining characters took the directionality of their base characters.

    I was only including middle height dots. The list of dots in other
    positions in much longer - at least four others just in Hebrew.

    I wasn't seriously suggesting any of these as suitable for Catalan,
    except possibly for HYPHENATION POINT.
