Indeed: normalization is a way of dealing with differences in logical
meaning where the symbols used are identical. For siunitx, I have to
balance meaning with the likelihood of the symbol appearing in the
output at all. Using the normalisation characters means that you have
the best chance of getting the visually correct output, while still
being able to search using the UTF-8 characters correctly.
