Yep, that’s what’s required for Vietnamese then.

Among Latin alphabets that we’ll be displaying, Vietnamese is a bit of a
special case for stacking diacritics. GentiumAlt’s flatter diacritics allow it
to fit Vietnamese on a standard-height line at the cost of some legibility. If
anything, we need more exaggerated diacritics that can survive the distortions.

Right, the whole point of this exercise is to include the diacritics. :-)
