Oops, no, that can't even work since Unicode's combining characters are
supposed to be typed after the base letter, while dead keys are typed
before.  Just to be clear:

- Users expect their already existing dead keys to act as dead keys,
  i.e. be typed before the base letter on which to put the accent.
- Users don't see the technical difference between î and n̂: it's just
  letters with circumflex above (be they precomposed or not).  And so
  they will very naturally want to just use the existing dead key to
  type n̂.
