    I agree, and this would certainly be necessary if Unicode Named
    Character Sequences are to be defined for Hebrew, e.g. for such
    meaningful concepts as HEBREW LETTER SIN WITH DOT and HEBREW LETTER SHIN
    WITH DOT, because these are commonly combined with other combining
    characters of lower combining class than SIN DOT and SHIN DOT.
