Such break in a middle of a multiple width diacritic exist in some
notations, and are not considered "horrible typography".
Just look at musical notations where a upper horizontal parenthesis
is used to group some elements (sorry I don't know how you name
it exactly in English or Italian), despite there's a measure break
in the middle, which may span to the other musical line: you end
up with two parts for the same diacritic broken across the lines.
