I assume you mean "If so..."
Here is an example:
<004A, 030C> is in NFC. (Capital letter J with a combining hacek)
If I use a simple lowercase transform on that I get:
<006A, 030C> That is not in NFC, because NFC(<006A, 030C>) --> 01F0
I think you can also get into trouble with combining marks
applied to capital Greek rho (cf. 1FE4) and possibly the
Latin long-s, too.
In other words, there are a few edge cases where there are
not completely symmetrical one-to-one simple case mappings between
some precomposed characters with diacritics.
