Yes, I agree with this suggestion too.

Actually, Jenner wrote y-circumflex in such items, and personally I
think this would be the best solution for our purposes as well.
(Michael, however, will raise font limitations as an objection.
Personally, I rarely use a font unless it has extensive Unicode
support, so this is irrelevant to me, but there's probably something
to it for the majority of Cornish users.)
