    There is very little point in designing a glyph that
    looks significantly different from what the IPA
    shows there in their own charts, because the point
    of U+0284 is to serve as *that* character.

    The Unicode representative glyph could be tweaked
    a little to match the IPA glyph more closely. In particular,
    the bar should be a little higher, and it wouldn't
    hurt to distinguish the top hook a little more from
    the top hook of the esh.

    But other than that, talking about how a dotless j
    with stroke and hook should look, based on its name,
    is an exercise in futility. Asmus is correct.
