G with acute is _also_ the transliteration of Macedonian gje.
But apparently this is not the reason for its inclusion in Unicode
because there is no K with acute (transliteration of U+040C, U+045C).
G with acute was (is?) indeed an alternative spelling (or call it
phonetic transcription) for U+01C4, U+01C5, U+01C6 when the
equivalence "one sound <-> one letter" is desired.
