    Certainly, if it is wrong.

    By the way, this is the kind of thing which *can* be fixed in
    the standard, if shown to be problematical.

    This deserves some research by people who know something about
    how these characters do in fact behave in line-breaking, and
    then, if a change is in order, a documented proposal explaining
    the problem and the suggested fix could be submitted to the
    UTC for consideration.
