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.
