Besides the question of how to place the annotation marks with respect to other marks on the same letter, is how to handle multiple annotiations on the same letter.

Should they stack, or what?

This may be discussed in David's reference
section 5.1
See especially the paragraph beginning “Human calligraphers”.

In bug #51125, David has shown a convention for positioning of Quranic annotation marks. They are left-aligned on any wider letter. They are placed quite high, and would otherwise be on a horizontal line, but can be raised in order to avoid collision with a high hakarat over the letter.

It would be nice to implement something like this, but I'm not sure how.
