Cyrillic letter "Ot", U+047F (upper case: U+047E), used in Old Slavonic
texts, is graphically a cyrillic omega (U+0461 and, upper case, U+0460;
equally archaic), with a "90-deg. clockwise rotated E" above it -- quite
like one of the usual (current) glyph variants for upper case cyrillic
"T" (U+0422), with some kind of hypertrophiated serifs.
Therefore, a possible decomposition of U+047F could be U+0461 U+036D,
relying on the rendering mechanism to alter the shape of the diacritical
"t" based on the base letter, and considering the "trans-script" nature
of Unicode diacritics (I.e., you dont need a specifically cyrillic "t"
diacritical for the same reason you dont need a specific cyrillic breve
for russian short "i".)
Not really a serious proposal, but what would you think?
