I appreciate you formulating the proposal.
The naming of the proposed characters "LATIN CAPITAL LETTER OLD POLISH
NASAL VOWEL" and "LATIN SMALL LETTER OLD POLISH NASAL VOWEL" is weird.
There seems not to be a single Unicode letter from the Latin script that

The naming of Unicode characters from the Latin script tends to be visually
descriptive. So the proposal goes against established Unicode practice.
But other than that, I think the proposal is worthwhile. The visual
modification done to get the “horned O”, as this letter was sometimes
called, was very different from the Danish practice, and there was quite
some variance. However, this variance was very different from that of the
Danish practice. I don’t think this letter can be decomposed into an O
followed by some existing diacritical mark.
I think these letters should be added to Unicode, but a more suitable name
should be chosen.
