Well, at least in Hebrew, everyday's written language almost never
uses marks at all, so I think 3 marks would be limited to Biblical
Hebrew or maybe poetry (and I'd be thrilled to know that
Hebrew-writing poets start using Emacs for their craft ;-).

If worse comes to worst, you can always disable auto-composition-mode,
edit the text, then re-enable it.

In the long run, it would be nice to have specialized commands for
moving inside composed characters, but I suspect that making it happen
would need non-trivial changes to the display engine.  Volunteers are
welcome to code that, but I personally have much more important things
on my plate for the foreseeable future.
