For the Latin letters at least, my 0.02 cents' worth (you read that 
right) is that they are probably so infrequently used that option (b) 
would be just fine.

As one anecdote (which is even less like "data" than two anecdotes), I 
could not find any of the characters IJ ij DŽ Dž dž LJ Lj lj NJ Nj nj or their hex 
equivalents in any of the CLDR keyboard definitions. I'd imagine that 
users just type the two characters separately, and that consequently 
most data in the real world is like that.
