I thought, but I might be mistaken, that Emacs allow changing these
character properties at runtime and someone might possibly want to use
that to change some character property (e.g. make some PUA character a
combining mark) and it would then be nice if HarfBuzz respected that. I
admit that is very niche thing if possible at all, and I’m more than
happy to let HarfBuzz use it default Unicode functions and simplify the
Emacs integration code.
