Out of curiosity, how many IDNs did you find that used

	--Arabic characters at all?
	--Arabic characters that could reasonably be seen as
	"decorated" (e.g., combining a base character with a
	combining character, whether expressed that way in
	Unicode or not)?

If the answer to either question is in the range of "few", I'm
not sure that any inference from the inability to find that one
particular character construction tells us very much.
