Thanks guys. Clear now.
I was led astray by:
"D1. A character S is a starter if it has a combining class of zero in
the Unicode Character Database. Any other character is a non-starter."
"In some implementations, people may be working with streaming
interfaces that read and write small amounts at a time. In those
implementations, the text back to the last starter needs to be
buffered. Whenever a second starter would be added to that buffer, the
buffer can be flushed."
Which are technically correct (once you know the correct answer),
but led me to suspect I could do slightly more aggressive flushing of
a streamed buffer...
