    I have a copy of JIS X 4051 as of today, and Martin Heijdra helped
    me find the right section. Here's what it says:

    7.11 圏点処理 圏点処理は,次による。
    a) 圏点の文字サイズは,親文字の文字サイズの 1/2 とする。
    b) 圏点は,親文字 1 文字に 1 文字だけつける。
    c) 圏点の位置は,縦書きでは親文字の外枠の右側とし,横書きでは親文字の外枠の上部
    d) 圏点がついた親文字列は,元の親文字の文字クラスに従う。
    e) 圏点クラスの文字種は,JIS X 4052 の附属書 2 による。

    Apparently the list of shapes endorsed by this spec is in appendix 2 of
    JIS X 4052?
