   Price Collins <collins@alphabet.com> notes that y: is needed in modern
   French in the legal name of the town Hayes-sur-Seine.  (There's an
   umlaut over the Y).

I missed that one entirely: in that case my contention falls and we
need the character. I still maintain that Latin-1/2 was a poor place
to put it, based on frequency of need :-)
