 I which case isn't it? Certainly you can typeset them through a \char
 command, but doing that inside a word is at least as silly as putting a
 questiondown there.

i know at least one such example: you copy and paste from another
application (Acroread, e.g.) and use a TeX font with the system coding
for ligatures. That would be rather bad to have suddenly boundary
kerns/ligs appearing in that case!
