No, it's more like including Devanagari candrabindu in the Latin
script because it sometimes occurs on Latin letters in discussions of
Sanskrit. (Actually, I can only recall it on lower-case 'l'.) We
already have U+0310 COMBINING CANDRABINDU.

The problem is that 'x' then takes the full set of Lao vowel symbols,
forming a default grapheme cluster.
