I think this is a problem of expectations. I don't export Org to
export perfect documents in every language. I expect Org to make a
simple subset of features available consistently.

With HTML or Latex you can create those words, and you can insert that
code into your Org document. Why does the Org syntax need to be
further extended to support this?

Part of the reason Org is a nice tool is that it is simple, and we
should be cautious trying to make it any more complex.
