FWIW, I've seen the handwriting of an elder German esperantist, and he
does exactly that: he puts breves above each and every "u", both on
those which have it and on those which don't -- slightly confusing...
On the brink of off-topic-ness, something of that sort is made in
handwritten cyrillic (at least in Russian tradition): the "triple wave"
of a lower case "t" is distinguished from the "triple wave" of a lower
case "shch" (*) by means of a stroke above the former and a stroke below
(*) Not that I'm an enthusiast of this transliteration...
