Ah, we're looking in different places. I'm looking in the code charts.
Section 6.2 talks about the semantics of the characters, but I'm talking
about glyph selection. I don't think that's the same. FOP has to
interpret characters according to section 6.2 during layout but (IMO) when
it comes to painting glyphs the semantics are not necessarily applicable
if you try to provide fallbacks.
