    The fongman and phnek moan (U+0E4F THAI CHARACTER FONGMAN
    and U+17D9 KHMER SIGN PHNAEK MUAN are related characters, but
    some of their properties are different. In particular, the fongman has
    a Line Break class of AL while the phnek moan has class NS. What little
    I know about the phnek moan makes it seem peculiar that its Line Break
    class is NS. Is there truly a distinction between how these two characters
    are used in their respective scripts that makes this difference warranted,
    or is this a possible error in the standard that deserves official scrutiny?
