Following the description in p.542 of TUS 5.0, the CGJ
(i.e. U+034F COMBINING GRAPHEME JOINER) separates graphemes,
e.g. in Slovak, it prevents a "ch" to be interpreted as a grapheme.
Thus, the CGJ splits or separates, but does not "join" in any case.
In the code table, the character has a informative note
"The name of this character is misleading, it does not actually join
graphemes", without giving more information.
Is it appropriate to propose a formal alias like
"COMBINING GRAPHEME SEPARATOR"?
