    What about U+0251 U+0361 U+0302 U+028A ? After a "double" diacritical,
    any further combining character could take as its base the "pair" of
    spacing characters "under" the said double diacritical, shouldn't it?

    Note that, U+0251 U+0361 U+0302 U+028A as given by BabelMap+Code2000
    (see <a~^u.gif> attached) is not productively different from U+0251
    U+0302 U+0361 U+028A (see <a^~u.gif> attached)...
