I noticed that in Yuan Jiahua's authoritative overview of Chinese dialects,
_Hanyu Fangyan Gaiyao_ (2nd ed., 1980), he uses left-stemmed mirrors of the
ordinary right-stemmed tone marks to indicate tone sandhi, the unmutated tone
having a right stem, immediately followed by the mutated tone with a left stem
(I can send you a scan off-list if you want). The examples he gives include
marks that look identical to U+02EA and U+02EB, as well as many other left- and
right-stemmed tone marks that are not currently encoded in Unicode. Are these
the subject of your proposal by any chance ?
