I will look into this.

Maybe something along these lines -- how will buffers be searched?
I'm talking about isearch, occur, re-search-forward, etc.  It seems
that you can get the same visual output on the minibuffer (or in your
string in elisp) as in the window, and still the characters in the
minibuffer and the buffer will not be in the same logical order.  One
way to deal with this would be a "canonicalization" of input (when
reading files or user input).  Eventhough UAX#9 says that the PDF
etc. characters should be ignored in these cases, if we have a
canonical form, then maybe we don't need to ignore them.  (?)
