I was thinking it would be better to give more information to later
maintainers, but the explicit entry would need to be the same as
what's already there, so best to leave it alone.

The VS-15 rule actually needs to continue to use
compose-gstring-for-variation-glyph, because if I change it to use
compose-gstring-for-graphic, the font_range change kicks in, and Emacs
displays the Emoji presentation for codepoints followed by VS-15.
