Even better would be to move the "unmask-at-point" feature out of 
prettify-symbols-mode, so that more complex hiding could use it too 
(prettify-symbols-mode is fairly strict in its inputs).

As a concrete example, company-coq prettifies abc__hijk as abcₕᵢⱼₖ (notice the 
hidden "__"), and I had to reimplement the unmasking feature.
