If you are the user of those particular scripts, removing the
compositions will be rather nasty for you, because it makes the text
barely legible, sometimes not at all.

Arabic uses automatic compositions, not static compositions produced
by text properties.  If you want to see which scripts use the
'composition' properties, search Lisp files for compose-region.

Perhaps Handa-san could tell if having 'composition' properties in
comments and strings is something that can happen in real life for
some scripts used in those comments/strings.  If it can (and I don't
know one way or the other), then I don't think we should remove all of
the 'composition' properties just because font-lock was turned off.

You assume that representatives of affected communities track Emacs
development.  But that assumption is not really guaranteed to be true.
