Isn't this a bit of an definition trick? Less define a decomposition and it is a precomposed character. You rather have to explain why this definition is missing than use it as an argument.

By the lack of a decomposition definition, let's remedy this.

Pronunciation is often of secondary importance (h is not pronounced in French, Italian, and pronounced differently in Croatian and English for instance).
But how would 066E + 065A appear and behave typographically differently than 0756? This is after all a character encoding not a pronunciation one.
