I suggest refining this question by adding the phrase 'within the same language'. There
are certainly examples of the same combining mark combined with the same base characters
in different positions for different languages (e.g. stacked tone marking in African
orthographies vs. Vietnamese), but these can be handled by interaction of language tagging
with font layout features. Off hand, I can't think of any examples directly parallel to
the vav haluma / holam male question.
