Is this true? If yes, a sequence of 2 codes can only be properly ordered and we can safely start reordering from the *third* code.

    COMBINING DOT ABOVE followed by LATIN SMALL LETTER D would not be a
    valid sequence, correct, but you should start working from the d, not
    the code that follows. After all, the "d" by itself *IS* a valid
    sequence, whether or not a combining character comes after it. It's the
    orphaned combining dot that is defective.
