No one is talking about changing existing items -- the question is about
these new characters thay cannot be represented aas precomposed formsd.
Legacy is not of a concern for characters that never existed in legacy
<snip a bit made irrelevant by the above>
It is of note that these characters are reportdely not used in the language
itself, but only in dictionaries for pronunciation info. If this is true
then this would be akin to needing IPA on the US English keyboard for the
sake of dictionaries -- in other words it would not be needed on the
Romanian keyboard (which probably explains why these items are not there
now, why there is no precomposed form in legacy standards, and why there is
no actual need to add these characters now).
