Both Hebrew and Arabic seem to use non-spacing combining characters,
presumably other Arabic-like scripts too.

I forgot to state explicitly in my docs, but let's just say that
handling non-spacing combining accents is a prerequisite for BiDi
support. Those emulators that don't handle them should be out of scope
for our current discussion.
