At the Vienna workshop yesterday (2008-11-05), it was demonstrated
that side-by-side-placing of diacritics of the same combining class
(e.g. ring above + acute accent) is common in dialect transcription
systems in a productive way, e.g. used in the Obščeslavjanskij
Therefore, a normative mechanism for doing so has to be added to
Unicode. If this could not be accomplished by extending the semantics
of ZWJ for doing so (then, Emanuele Sanciu's example would be encoded
"latin small letter c/g" + "combining comma above" + ZWJ + "combining
acute"), then the introduction of a special "combining mark joiner"
could be a solution.
