>Okay, so DOTLESS J is going to be a character someday.

Absolutely true! Don't expect to see new and revised
decomposition such as SMALL LETTER J decomposes to SMALL LETTER
DOTLESS J + COMBINING DOT ABOVE, SMALL LETTER J WITH CIRCUMFLEX
decomposes to SMALL LETTER DOTLESS J + COMBINING CIRCUMFLEX
One thing that arguably is lacking from Unicode is a set of
usage guidelines. When someone is trying to decide how to
represent a given writing system in Unicode, they could make
the wrong choices either because they don't know of the right
characters, they don't fully understand the character
semantics, or who knows whatever other reason. It wouldn't be
hard to imagine someone innocently and na<vely doing exactly
what John has pointed out should not be done.
