1. It corresponds to standard Hebrew grammar.
2. It would be simple and easy to explain to users, edit, handle in
3. A combining mark for holam male would be applicable to a vav and only to
a vav. It seems needlessly complicated and arcane to create a combining mark
for the sole purpose of creating exactly one sequence that uses it.
4. A combining mark sequence would invite the creation of a new presentation
form (or else changing the decomposition of FB4B).
