    Would a string like "Tho‍mas Hüh‍n" (ThoU+200Dmas HuU+0308hU+200Dn be

    (a) a valid Unicode string with some semantics?

    (b) a valid Unicode string that may be used to transmit the information
        that someone is called "Thomas Hühn"?

    Question (b) aims at whether this string might be a valid From: in some
    Internet mail message (properly MIME-encoded, of course) or just a bunch
    of characters that just don't fit together semantically.
