    You are right that a font should have
    pre-composed glyphs. But you're not right to
    think that it is necessary to use PUA encoding to
    access them. That's the big problem with MUFI as
    I see it: it uses PUA code points for
    pre-composed "characters" instead of using the
    right font tables within the fonts to access them.
