Having "Ã" -> "OE" transliteration rule seems like a good thing.
Looking at the current tables I see these for Ã (U00C6) and Ã (U00D6):
For Ã Unicode specifies decomposition (U004F U0308) but not so for Ã/Ã.
So it's a bit unclear to me are all the three rules above as expected?
Also, I wonder how do we cope with these kind of local additions when
resolving bug 14094?
