    There is no need to reason this out along those lines; the case mapping
    for this character is fully documented in

    (Incidentally, it matches what you would expect from the deocmposition).

    The reason it is documented in SpecialCasing.txt rather than in UnicodeData.txt
    mostly has to do with the fact that it is a 1:2 mapping, not a 1:1.
