    I agree that there is this limitation in MSKLC.
    For myself I make my own keyboard layout so that I can have the double dead
    key, since one can do that if one goes back to the basic procedures
    available in DDK.
    The double dead key is useful in cutting down on the number of key
    assignments. It helps in Greek where rough/smooth breathing has to be
    combined with acute/grave etc.
    It also helps in Chinese Pinyin, where the tone mark needs to be combined
    with the umlaut over u.
    All this can be done within the framework available in the DDK.
