I know that this is the official Unicode policy, only that I am
wondering what was the reason for inclusion of several combining Latin
characters in the 1E00 range, of which, in theory, most of them can be
obtained via combining diacritical marks.

Perhaps with a custom built keyboard layout, like it is required for
other sophysticated Unicode usage.
How do users of Linux and/or Windows type combining diacritical
marks on a daily basis ?

Hm. Supposing I type by mistake the wrong combining diacritical mark,
then when I want to make the correction (by hitting backspace once) I
have to retype the main character too ?
