\hat{\imath + \jmath} = \hat{\imath} + \hat{jmath}

Although this really misses the point. Unicode contains several
characters that are explictly there to round trip other formats.

Given the importance today to map documents coded in 
XML+Unicode character data
I find it frankly astonishing that Unicode 3 didn't take
as a _requirement_  that it support all the characters that had ISO
entity definitions.
