Except in so far as the claimed ligature changes the meaning of the
ligated elements. For example, using <'a', ZWJ, 'e'> for an a-umlaut
that was clearly not a-diaeresis would probably be on the edge of what
is permissible. Returning to the example, shouldn't 1F468 200D 1F680
mean 'male rocket maker'?
