    are there precomposed characters that map to more than 2 codes? If yes, what kind of chars are concerned?
    If no, then it seems to me the only case of multi-stage decomposition is when a character first maps to a standard singleton like for Angstrom --> A with ring --> A, ring.
    If this is true, then NFD algorithm can be rewritten as
    -1- standardisation (angstrom to a with ring)
    -2- actual decomposition (single stage)
    -3- ordering
    for each source code.
    What do you think?
