Hi Greg and Jirimutu,
We should not use any FVSs for YI diphthongs. It makes not only 
difficult the input (4 times typing for two characters!) but decrease 
performance of post-processing like spell checking. The occurrence of 
diphthongs in Mongolian are incomparable high from just some limited 
number of regular YI words. The stems with YI are not more than 20. All 
words with inflections are listed in email 
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-i18n-mongolian/2015OctDec/0184.html 
from Siqin.
The arguments of Jirimutu are completely solvable by OT rules. They are 
already solved in Mongolianscript font.
