Not that we have a paper, or that I'm asking for anyone to do work, but
without access to the UCD, all the other algorithms are off the table. In
theory it's an implementation detail, in practice it would be an ABI break
to change the APIs for property lookup, and having two or more mechanisms
in a std library implementation seems like a bad idea.
Expectation setting is important. It's not clear to everyone how the
Unicode layers work, even if the explanations are straight-forward.
