  Just to put some emphasis to what John Cowan already said, I'm afraid
of the cost of normalizing on-the-fly, the algorithms I could found
in the Unicode annexes were just scary (in term of complexity and memory
requirement) maybe there is simpler lean and cheap normalization 
algorithms (I would like pointers ;-) but definitely that cost is better
done once at generation time. Apparently normalization checking is
slightly lighter and as said that check is optional c.f. 2.13 wording.
