In the Welsh language, "y" and "w" are vowels and can both 
take a circumflex accent.  Since Welsh *is* catered for by 
the LANG attributes ("cy" - "Cymraeg") it seems strange to 
be missing two characters from the HTML 4.0 spec.

I would love to see 4 new character entities:

  &Ycirc;
  &ycirc;
  &Wcirc;
  &wcirc;

Is this the right place for suggestions, if not can anyone 
tell me who I should be contacting?
