We should, of course, support these features.  But their support
should be controlled by Lisp programs, not be hard-coded in some
low-level C code.  The way to access discontinuous ranges of buffer
text as a single character sequence needs support in Emacs Lisp before
we can map it to the equivalent TS features.

We have the beginning of this, but have a lot more turf to cover.  And
currently, what we have uses restrictions.
