I'm not sure about "significant". That would depend on how you perceive the
differences. I have a preference for <ei> over <ë>/<ÿ>. This is mainly
because it removes an unnecessary diacritical mark. I don't like <ô>/<ê> in
words like <clôwes>/<clêwes>, nor <ê> in words like <yêth>. This is
over-specification*, and they did not appear in KS1. I have a preference for
<-f>/<-ff> over <-v>. This is mainly because it looks to be more authentic.
I prefer <ch> over <k> for the Greek letter 'chi'. Again, this appears to be
more authentic. I like the idea of a colloquial register.
[ * English does not over-specify. It is the most successful and most learnt
language on the planet. Of course, a little tidying up might help. See
