It appears anyway that paired diacritics tend to be encoded as
separate characters anyway, the most recent example being U+1DFD
COMBINING ALMOST EQUAL TO BELOW (in FPDAM6), being two stacked tildes
Thus, regarding Teuthonista, the following diacritics seem to be
encoding candidates also:
COMBINING TWOFOLD INVERTED BREVE ABOVE
COMBINING TWOFOLD INVERTED BREVE BELOW
COMBINING TWOFOLD BREVE BELOW
(I used TWOFOLD here, as DOUBLE is already used for all three of
these, indicating "spanning over two base letters").
(btw, if such a naming pattern is accepted, COMBINING TWOFOLD TILDE
BELOW may be a better name for U+1DFD, which is not fixed yet
as it is in FPDAM stage now.)
