Re: Why doesn't Ideographic (ID) in UAX#14 have half-width katakana?

I don't think that is the issue. U+FF9E/F are already lb=NS, which prevents
line breaks before. The issue is instead loosening up the lb class for
the halfwidth katakana syllables (from lb=AL to lb=ID), so that they *can*
break the way the regular katakana syllables do.
