Compound combining marks

    I notice that Unicode 5.0 has several compound combining marks (macron
    plus acute, etc.) at U+1DC4..1DC9. I'm curious about the reason for
    adding these? In other words, what advantage do they have over simply
    using two of the existing combining marks, which will stack properly if
    an app follows the behavior specified in TUS?

    Thanks - David
