Having been there, the diacritic you described I would clearly
describe as a three-fold broken like, NOT as two circumflexes next to
each other joined.
While we _have_ seen diacritics side by side (and I believe this is
not an encoding issue, but a positioning issue, similar to glyph
variation), the one example you just mentioned, Karl, I believe does
not belong to that class.
