If someone wants to submit patches to detect that this is indeed
invalid, those patches will be welcome.  But I must note that it will
not be easy, because compose-region _can_ accept strings, it just
assigns special meaning to the string's characters, as described in
the doc string.  IOW, your string is "valid" by being a string, but
"invalid" in that it causes incorrect display.
