Latin Extended A comprises the characters in Latin-2, Latin-3, Latin-4, and
Latin-5 that are not also in Latin-1. AFAIK there is no European
language that requires i~, so it didn't make it into any of these
character sets. In Vietnamese, though, ~ is a tone mark, and therefore can
appear over any vowel; like the other precomposed Vietnamese-only
characters, i~ appears in Latin Extended Additional.
