Hi Denis,

A fea thoughts ... library data may be nfc or nfd, but is more likely to
conform to the MARC character repetoire, so isn't exactly NFD.

Vietnamese data is either 1) NFC or 2) neither NFC nor NFD

It would be rare to find vietnamese data in NFD

For a range of afrjcan languages, maily ones uskng diacriti s anx diacritic
stackkng, it may be 1) NFC, 2) NFD or 3) niether NFC nor NFD depending on
the input framework used.
