    Nothing, really, since U+2135 ALEF SYMBOL is formally a compatibility
    variant of U+05D0 HEBREW LETTER ALEF and thus will go bye-bye if you
    normalize using NFKC or NFKD. In practice, the most important thing
    distinguishing the two is directionality. U+2135 ALEF SYMBOL has
    directionality L and U+05D0 HEBREW LETTER ALEF has directionality R.
