The entity "ch" already has an encoding in Unicode: U+0063 +
U+0068. It doesn't need another precomposed-form encoding,
unless there is something else your not telling us: please
specify one text process that you or other Czechs need to have
performed that can't be done unless there is a separate,
precomposed character for "ch".
In contrast, there isn't a single Klingon character that can
currently be encoded. We can question whether fantasy scripts
should be encoded, but you can't compare those cases to "ch",
"ll", n-ring or any other potential pair that can currently be
encoded. They are entirely different situations.

I find it ridiculous that when I suggested to treat 'CH' as a
character - which it is in Slovak, Czech, and several other
languages - I was swamped with the reasons why that should not
be the case, but at the same time it is apparently OK to encode
fictional "alphabets" such as Klingon in Unicode.
I guess linguistic reasons are secondary to popularity reasons.
I guess we unimportant Slovaks are just expected to change our
alphabetization rules so mighty Klingons can get their way.
Heck, we should just teach our children English and Klingon,
and forget our own language, culture, and tradition. :(
