    In Turkish and Azeri, "i" is explictly dotted. It's the same U+0069 as
    everyone else uses, but in those languages, there is less leeway in
    glyph appearance, since it must be disambiguated from "ı". And, most
    important, the corpus of existing documents in Turkish and Azeri already
    uses U+0069 to represent dotted "i".
