I’d have to find all the zero-width characters, set them to 575 and the centre the diacritic in the box. 

Even typewriters let you backspace to put a " or / on top of an o to simulate ö and ø.

I'm not involved with that community (and don't know what they have or haven't said on this topic thus far), but if Patrick thinks that this would be a useful thing, perhaps he could contact them?
