While true, using the latter (the dotless ones) tend to render better
than the dotted ones. (I.e., the Soft_dotted property is still not
well supported.)

While I agree that that maybe SHOULD be fine, the ij character has not
been given the Soft_dotted property. Although, as a different matter,
using the ij character tends to make automatic case mapping work better
for the ij in Dutch...
