    Sometime last year, UTC considered a similar case involving an orthography for a language in (IIRC) Panama, and the decision was that this should be handled as a contextual kerning adjustment -- no additional characters needed to be encoded. Of course, that implies specially-designed fonts.

    If that is not adequate for the case you've mentioned, you might submit a proposal for some other solution.
