    And even if there comes no such agreement it would still be possible to
    convert their entire web site and database to Unicode if there is really a

    "ṣ" and "s̩" cannot be canonical equivalent or compatibility equivalent,
    that would be nonconformant, but they surely can be equivalent in the sense
    of having the same sort key, just like "ss" and "ß".
