    I really doubt that the UTC would ever consent to encoding additional
    Latin ligatures any more than it would encode additional precomposed
    accented Latin letters. The ones that we have are present in the
    standard for the sole purpose of providing round-trip compatibility
    with older standards (e.g., MacRoman).
