The Unicode people are probably going to standardize on calling it
"diacritic folding", by analogy to the term "case folding".
I have provided them with a table that does diacritic folding for the
Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, and Hebrew scripts; it does not, however, remove
combining diacritics (which is easy to do on your own).
