    Ah. It hadn't occurred to me that combining marks could apply to a
    chord, and because of the accident of pitch in my example, the V's
    visually looked like they were placed equidistant from the top and
    bottom of the staff. So I didn't look at the combining marks. Makes
    sense now.
