Antenna House put a great deal of effort into implementing Thai glyph
composition--it is nontrivial. It is probably not reasonable to expect
XEP to do Thai glyph composition unless they go to the same level of effort.
Of modern languages, Thai is probably one of the worst cases when it
comes to glyph composition because of the number of elements involved in
each glyph and the grammar-sensitive rules on composition. I don't
pretend to understand them except to understand that they are complex.
