And this is more-or-less what I’m saying, too.
- Having a simple heuristic that doesn’t work well would be unfortunate
- Adding more and more special cases on top of a heuristic that didn’t work well in the first place would just end up being a pile of hacks
- Having a super complicated heuristic would be a headache for both authors and implementors

Instead, of somehow trying to synthesize whitespace collapsing rules from the East_Asian_Width property and the Emoji property, we should allow for more experimentation to try to come up with a more elegant solution (perhaps in the Unicode consortium). We have an opportunity now because there isn’t compact risk.
