That's the point in the implementation: i.e., it gives a visual
feedback that indicates dead-key is being processed even in the
read-only buffer using an overlay string.  Such kind of feedback can
also be seen in other Mac applications (modulo colors/underline, which
is customizable in the Carbon port) and even in X11 apps with XIM.
