Non sense. The various normal forms aren't needed for printing, but for
"working with them". Same for the various encodings like UTF-8 and
Think about the other type systems with diacritics like TeX.
That is made for printing documents, not for working with them.

That depends on what you mean with "identical".
I guess you mean the topic "collation". It would be nice if someone
with some knowledge about that topic could start a wiki page or
fpdoc topic to list the common functions for them.
