TUS 5.0 chapter 9.1 page 299:
"Vowel Letters. Vowel letters are encoded atomically in Unicode, even
if they can be analyzed visually as consisting of multiple parts.
Table 9-1 shows the letters that can be analyzed, the single code
point that should be used to represent them in text, and the sequence
of code points resulting from analysis that should not be used."
The question is whether this is merely a description of the encoding
practice inherited from ISCII or whether this is a rule to be applied
to all new characters.
But as Miichael says, this is an issue that should be decided by UTC and WG2.
