    Not if you actually want to have those diacritics correctly placed.

    Ideographic description char sequences are explicitly permitted to just give
    a description of what the composed char should look like, instead of
    actually rendering the composed char.

    v3,p269: "In particular, support for the characters in the Ideographic
    Description Block does _not_ require the rendering engine to recreate the
    graphic appearance of the described character."
