    In Tibetan and Ranjana scripts there is a well known grapheme cluster or
    vertical stack (HAKṢHMALAWARAYAṀ) which consists of nine characters that
    stack vertically:

    ཧྐྵྨླྺྼྻྂ U+0F67 U+0F90 U+0FB5 U+0FA8 U+0FB3 U+0FBA U+0FBC U+0FBB U+0F82

    It is likely that there exist a few combinations even longer.
