    Assuming that you can use combining characters on super/subscripts
    (which you can in theory), there are as many missing characters from
    English as there are for Turkish: 1 (in Turkish's case, ı).

    They are consistent; the super/subscripts are the ones that are used
    as characters.

    It's not crippled; it's just not designed to do what you want. Anyone
    who wants to use the letters in IPA or a modern orthography will find
    all the letters they need there, as designed.
