All of the HANGUL SYLLABLEs have canonical decompositions. They are
specified by arithmetic formula rather than by explicit tabulation.
That is just because that is more practical, given that there are
more than eleven thousand of them, and they have a certain system
to them making the arithmetic approach possible.
See http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode5.0.0/ch03.pdf, section 3.12, and
http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode5.1.0/, Clarification of Hangul Jamo
handling, and http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr15/.
Unfortunately they do not always fully decompose to the sequence
of individual letters of the Hangul script, but to "letter clusters".
But that is another story.
