This would require modifying the Unicode tables.  They are just large
char-tables, so someone who knows what they are doing should be able
to do that.

But that's not for the faint at heart, and I don't see why users would
like to disable or replace portions of those tables.  I do understand
why in some use cases certain equivalences classes are inappropriate,
but they are inappropriate _as_a_whole_.  Doing that for a part of a
class doesn't make sense to me.  E.g., why would you want to make 2
and ② equivalent, but not 2 and ²?  So this kind of customization
doesn't have to be easy, IMO, and it's okay to ask such users to know
what they are doing.
