Vietnamese, by my calculation, ranks 7th in number of native speakers
among languages primarily written in the Latin script. It has more
native speakers than Italian or Turkish or Polish, more than twice as
many as Romanian.
It is not unusual to see Vietnamese coded with at least some combination
of combining marks, not strictly in NFC.
I understand that it is difficult, in general, to get combining-mark
rendering to work properly in fonts and rendering engines. I hope
efforts are ongoing in the industry to improve this state of affairs and
not continue to rely solely on precomposed characters, particularly for
this widely used Latin-script language.
