What's with this NFG / Normal Form G that you refer to? I don't see any mention of that in http://unicode.org/reports/tr15/ ... did you mean NFC?

For that matter, is it possible for all realistic combinations of diacritics and base letters to be represented by a single Unicode codepoint, including all language-dependent graphemes?

I thought NFC sort of did one codepoint per grapheme but there were a few exceptions ... I could be wrong on that point.
