Sorry for jumping in in the middle of this, but are you guys really 
sure that this is the way to go? The dot on an i is not an accent, 
it's part of the letter! As such, it is is placed higher than e.g. a 
dieresis accent. That's why there are fi and ffi ligatures but no fä, 
fö, fë, etc. ligatures after all.

I'm not familiar with the typography of slavic languages but I'd 
expect the dot accent to be vertically aligned with other accents, 
most notably the dieresis accent. Compare: éë\.e
