This is what is currently marked as "Issue 4" in the spec.  The 'all'
value really needs to only be applied to the root-most element when
there are nested elements that have a non-default value for
'text-combine-horizontal'.  The 'digits' value needs to work on
selected ranges within subelements.

Since tatechuyoko usage is limited to typically 2-3 character spans, I
think we should solve this within the definition of the property values
rather than add additional properties, as was proposed in [1].
