AFAICT, the composition machinery doesn't allow to have a rule with
non-zero PREV-CHARS where PREV-CHARS are supposed to match characters
that have their own rules in composition-function-table.  Such rules
are never considered, because once the rules for a character are
processed, we never reconsider what to do with that character.  I will
ask Kenichi Handa whether my conclusion is indeed correct, but for
now, I think we should take the fire escape you mentioned earlier:

AFAIU, this means we will add 1F3FB..1F3FF to the characters that can
follow each of those which have rules with zero lookback.
