The Unihan database is stored in NFD because it makes the regular expressions used to qualify its contents much, *much* simpler. I imagine that things like fuzzy text matching are easier in NFD. At worst, it's about as useful as UTF-32: occasionally very handy in internal processing, but not terribly attactive overall.
