If there are likely to be many languages requiring exceptions to the 
segmentation algorithm wrt U+2019, then perhaps it would be better to 
establish conventions using ZWJ/ZWNJ and adjust the algorithm 
accordingly so that it would be cross-languages.  (Rather than requiring 
additional and open ended language-specific tailorings.) (I inserted 
several combinations of ZWJ/ZWNJ into James Tauber's example, but 
couldn't improve the segmentation in LibreOffice, although it was 
possible to make it worse.)
