Not really a safe conclusion. :)

Although I guess it depends on what the meaning of "aaccidental" is. The
here is that in citations of non-Danish names in Danish text, an "aa"
can never be equated
to an å, but nor would you want to insert a SHY between the a's in that case
to distinguish the sequence.
