From the point of view of both input systems and the OpenType
font format specification it already is. I'm sure Graphite
supports that, too.
OpenType has language code IPPH for IPA phonetic transcription
and APPH for 'Phonetic transcription-Americanist conventions'.
I do not know to what extent applications and libraries support
tagging text runs with arbitrary OpenType language codes. It
might be difficult to use IPPH in practice?
