I think triple diacritic is the way to go, though it would be good to
collect examples of triphthongs and trigraphs for which such marks exist. I
think I've seen reference to a combining triple breve. We also need single
accents to go above and below the double (i.e. two letter) marks - they
might also serve for the triple marks. The sort of think I have in mind is
a way of encoding the acute in a double breve plus acute, as you might want
to mark a stressed broken vowel in Old English.
Rendering support might not be easy, though. Your font might need to
convert the character sequences to ones in a prepared list.
