Full Canonical Decomposition

(For Unicode Strings;)
To get a Unicode string into NFC or NFD, one does a full canonical decomposition, which makes use of only canonical Decomposition_Mapping values.
The decomposition process makes use of the Unicode Decomposition Mapping property values defined in UnicodeData.txt.
A Full Canonical Decomposition is used in the Unicode main sorting algorithm
