I haven't tried this, but it sounds like translators and Language
Engineering folks might be interested.

Just to let it known, some it.source contributors are using a comfortable
gadget to manage diacritics - it can delete, replace or add a pretty large
list of diacritical marks to any character with a single click.

It uses .normalize() string method, so decomposing-recomposing (when
possible) unicode characters and allowing to manage diacritics alone
indipendently from base ascii character.

Perhaps is this gadget   "rediscovering the wheel"....? Anyway, the code is
here: https://it.wikisource.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-pulsanti-diacritici.js
