Small caps - to precompose or not to precompose
0

What is y'all's opinion on precomposed small caps? Is it necessary to fill out the code pages with the accents are should mark positioning be enough? That is, if a program is smart enough to use OpenType small caps, can we presume it's smart enough to decompose U+00e0 to U+0061 and U+0300, and then use the small cap version of those?
