The Polish letter is clearly a modified LATIN LETTER O.  The diacritic
is a slash, and diacritics are unified on the basis of shape.  The
debate should therefore be whether the slash is sufficiently different
from that of Danish - or combines sufficiently differently.  Polish and
modern Greek acute accents are steeper than western European acute
accents, but are still unified.
