I still hope we can come to some conclusion on the correct Unicode name
for this concept. I don't think non-Unicode interpretations of terms
like "grapheme" are grounds for throwing out "grapheme cluster," but I
can see that the equivalence class itself is lacking a name.

Note that the Swift definition doesn't say that <00E9> and <0065 0301>
are identical entities, only that the language compares them as equal.
