Well, what's the weakest condition we could impose to guarantee that the
boundaries have normals?  You've said that fractal boundaries don't
necessarily have normals.  Obviously boundaries specified by linear
equations would have normals, except perhaps at kinks, but that's a more
restrictive assumption than I want to impose.
