    Thanks for the helpful images.

    Even if only one numeral is used with the raised footnote mark, it will
    still require some careful glyph juggling: not difficult, but certainly
    specialised. Crucially, though, the raised footnote mark needs to be
    encoded distinct from the baseline footnote sign. So the next step would
    be to write a proposal for this character.
