This is a better answer than mine, so disregard my noise.  But I do have a
question below:

I found \XeTeXinputnormalization in XeTeX documentation, but I'm not
familiar with the other two commands.  I guess \tracingonline=1 means to
output errors to stdout (or stderr?), but where is the effect of
\tracinglostchars described?  In particular, what error msgs should I look
for if normalization fails or a font lacks a normalized character?
