    > -1- Either Unicode does not impose any restriction on combination. But then we can and are allowed to concretely encode characters (or rather grapheme) that have no attested existence in real use: for instance, (ASTERISK, COMBINING CIRCUMFLEX). This seems to me contradictory with unicode guidelines, I guess. But opens the door to creative use of unicode ;-)

    And is useful e.g. for maths, which very much like inventing such kind
    of use :)
