So <d+zh> (U+0434 U+0436) is apparently a heritage from Russian, which does not have 
the U+04B7 glyph and therefore substitutes a digraph.

BTW, http://www.geonames.de/alphtz.html suggests U+01E7 as transliteration of U+04B7. 
So we have a few more renderings, i.e. <toÇikÄ> (transliterated from Cyrillic Tajik) 
and <tajikÄ> [or <tojikÄ>?] (transliterated from Arabic Tajik).

I can't agree. The spelling is clearly "ÑÐÒÐÐÓ" which you can see has
only six letters. No digraph for the sound:
