> John, you proposed the initial set. Do you have any suggestion here?
My original submission had only the single-character mappings, not the
character pair mappings, which are just the result of decomposing the
precomposed set and don't IMHO make much sense: they are too selective.
The list predates TR#30; I developed it for the purpose of
making NFC Latin text minimally legible on an old ASCII-only
printer. (I simply changed the filtering regex from "LATIN" to
"LATIN|GREEK|CYRILLIC|HEBREW".) It was not intended to cope with
partially or fully decomposed text.
I agree that in the TR#30 context, the Right Thing is to remove the
character pair mappings altogether, and all of the single-character
mappings that have canonical decompositions.
