Text in composed normalized form is king, right? Does anyone generate text in decomposed normalized form?

Hi Folks,

The W3C recommends [1] text sent out over the Internet be in Normalized Form C (NFC):

    This document therefore chooses NFC as the
    base for Web-related early normalization.

So why would one ever generate text in decomposed form (NFD)?

Do any programming languages output text in NFD? Does Java? Python? C#? Perl? JavaScript?

Do any tools produce text in NFD?

Should I assume that any text my applications receive will always be normalized to NFC form?

Is NFD dead?
