The question here is what should serve as their transliteration and
They are not covered by ISO9 neither by GOST 7.79. So maybe it would be
reasonable to assume there is no notable occurrence of those anywhere?
Anyway I am happy to include your specific suggestions for all and any
Unicode quartets in this form:
; ISO9 Latin Transliteration (System A) as Unicode
; Transcription (System B) as (mulitcharacter)ASCII
; name to put in %COMMENT

here is a result of my test on
U0423 0301-У́ -> U0423 0301-U
U0443 0301-у́ -> U0443 0301-u
So yes, they are not processed. I would drop them to not to have special
cases. But I am also fine with keeping them because all work is done
