[Spellyans] <y Y> + diacritical

At the risk of stirring up a hornets nest, I think this may be taking
things a bit too far. I think everyone would be happy with 'deth' or
'dyth' without recourse to diacritics at all. I strongly suspect that
no one will actually write them once they become fluent enough anyway.
Deith still looks horrible to me (as does chei, rei etc..), and I've
tried to like it, really I have.

Is it really such a huge problem?
