Let's be precise here. If the 7-character character sequence "蠔"
appears in an XML document, it never opens a tag and it is never changed
by normalization. If the 1-character sequence consisting of a single
U+226E appears in an XML document, and that document is put through
NF(K)D, it will become not well-formed. However, NF(K)D is not
recommended for XML documents, which should be in NFC.
