    Seems illogical. The dot above is not double. This looks like defective for
    me, the dot above is attached to no letter, so we would get either:
    * t+double-inverted-breve, then the dot would be badly positioned, and the s
    would not be below the souble-inverted-breve; or
    * t+dot-above next to a simple s, and a double inverted breve above all.
    I see no reason why the dot would move in the center between the two base
    letters. This is an unexpected deviation from the expected behavior of the
    dot above.
    How can the double inverted breve pass "over" the dot above to link with the
    s encoded after it?

    So I would think:
    t + double-inverted-breve + double-dot-above + s
    But there's still no such double-dot-above...
