    I'm not sure what on pg 2 you're referring to.

    As for whether 1b0e can be decomposed into 1b0d + 1b39, I don't know -- you and the Balinese need to clarify this. All I know is that this is not a decomposition that was proposed in L2/05-090 and approved by UTC, and the ultimate reason that decomposition wasn't in that doc is because when you, Ken and I sat down in Xiamen and made up a minimal list of atomic elements 1b0e was one of the items in that list. I don't have any opinion on whether or not to add a decomposition mapping for this other than that we should do what makes best sense for the script and its users.
