Isn't the position now that the correct encoding would be <0F43 0FB1
0FB1 0FB2 0FB2 0F74 0F74 034F 0F71>? If U+034F can prevent the
misordering of hiriq and patah in Hebrew (TUS Version 6.0 Section
16.2), then it should be able to sort out the ordering of Tibetan
vowels. What does this stack abbreviate?

I think U+034F is also the answer to distinguishing Tibetan <C,
I, U> and <C, U, I> abbreviations of <C, I, C, U> and <C, U, C, I> -
distinguish them as <C, I, U> and <C, U, U+034F, I>.
