I don't call this usage a diacritic, but an interlinear annotation for noting additional phonetic liaisons; the sentence and the orthography is not modified. So this should be encoded out of the main text stream, using some rich-text protocol...
Well, if you really need to mark those liaisons, encode it over the space separator only, because that's all what is really modified:
on⁀en⁀a pour son⁀argent.
(I used U+2040 here, which is not a combining character, but a punctuation mark replacing the space)
