I propose nothing. I don't even mention the possibility of anything to
make a full phonetic representation, merely something which could be
used, by those who want to mark up text in that way (although many will
choose not to), to distinguish between words with the same spelling but
different pronunciations, like "lead" in English. But my words "mark up"
betray how I think any such proposal would be viewed.
