    However, it may be indicative of the sort of confusion that INVISIBLE
    LETTER may cause.

    That is to say, the benefits of creating a separate character to
    disunify the diacritic-carrying function from SPACE are certainly real,
    but so is the likelihood that people will confuse its functionality with
    that of ZWSP and ZWJ and ZWNJ and ZWNBSP, and invent bizarre
    combinations thereof.
