In my opinion there is no question what
'LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH MACRON AND BREVE'
should yield, because the name should be absent on the name list.
My example concerns names like
'LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH MACRON AND BREVE [MUFI]'
'COMBINING ABBREVIATION MARK SUPERSCRIPT UR ROUND R FORM [MUFI]'
