> Well, string comparision sans accents is a sensible use case. To do it via Unicode normalization and then removing all accents is straightforward. Should it (the character properties, however done) not be raised?

String comparison doesn't need character properties because comparison frameworks use their own tables, and they also have mechanisms for things like ignoring case or diacritics.
