    I am well aware that the "peculiar Unicode" encoding of letter clusters
    as units is not the fault of the Consortium but, like the encoding of
    the hangul syllables themselves, is the fault of the Korean printing
    industry, which likes to treat these as units because it simplifies
    rendering. But that doesn't make it less peculiar from a linguistic
    point of view since Hangul is in fact a segmental writing system.
