Not because you need someone's permission, but because such general
assumptions are not likely to be valid.

What Ken was referring to as insuperable (did he actually use that
word?) was not the issue of diacritic placement. Rather, the problems
that blocked changing at this late date to a dynamic composition model
for Arabic have to do with the issues related to normalization (both
technical and political) and the vast legacy of implementations that use
a precomposing model.
