Similar-looking (non compatibility) diacritics can also have different
behaviours (for example in their respective stacking order), I see this
as a legitimate reason to desunify similar-looking diacritics used by
different scripts. Otherwise, I guess script-specific diacritics that
look and behave(*) like generic diacritics may well embody some spoofing
(*) This is relative since generic combining marks may adopt several
slightly variant representations and behave slightly differently across
the languages that use them.
