Well it probably depends on the implementer. For us we group the characters as much as we can when we handle character situations like this. The cases however are written for all implementers and I can't make any assumptions on how others may implement the characters. When you create individual cases for each specific character you have no chance of missing a case because of implementation.

I'll take a look at this and see what I can do. Most likely this case won't have a simple solution but I see your point and I will attempt a few different solutions.
