That is one way.  But I'm not sure that the current code
handles the composition component of empty string
correctly.  :-(

Another way is to treat it as the same way as "\t" display
property.   Composition component of one character string is
the same as display property of that one character string.
For instance, the following two has the same visual effect:

(put-text-property 1 2 'display "a")
(compose-region 1 2 "a")
