Sorry, but that doesn't seem like the right choice to me. If I am
processing some lump of UTF-* text in a way that doesn't care about
grapheme clusters (etc), then I don't want to have to waste effort on
an unnecessary normalisation step.
Why do you think that your algorithms - whatever algorithms they are,
which we don't know yet - benefit from this precondition?
