You may well be correct that NFC is never longer than NFD, but that's not the question. The question is whether NFC may be longer than the current paths (which are not normalized to normalization form C or to form D). And the answer is yes it may be longer. See <http://unicode.org/faq/normalization.html#11>.

That statement seems to be talking about converting between NFC and NFD, not from un-normalized to normalized.
