That particular case oughtn't to be impossible, as in NFD everything in
sight has ccc=0.  However TUS 12.0 Section 23.4 does contain an
additional prohibition against meaningfully applying a variation
selector to a 'canonical decomposable character'. (Scare quotes because
'ly' seems to be missing from the phrase.)
