    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.
