--- Comment #8 from Alexey Proskuryakov <ap at webkit.org> ---
This keeps coming up as something that looks like unusual behavior at s first glance, however this is an intentional behavior for compatibility. 

I expect that this change will break more than it fixes, because NFC is s lot more common in general. You have an example of a file and a server that only accepts the decomposed form, but do we know that it's more common than the opposite?

Mac is special here, because the platform uses decomposed form. But consider the case where a user types into a search form, and the form is submitted as a GET. Currently, we normalize to NFC, and the server gets the same request from Safari as it gets from e.g. Firefox on Windows. With the proposed change, the request will be different, and a server that doesn't implement normalization will misbehave.
