Possibly. I was hoping Eli would jump in and tell me :-)

All the uses of key-translation-map that I can find map a sequence to
a character, but your mapping is to multiple characters. That works
fine with normal keymaps, but not with key-translation-map, and Iʼve
not found documentation telling me thatʼs wrong (nor that itʼs right).

Lars has said he's planning to do that. Iʼm growing quite fond of it 😁😼
