This goes a long way to addressing my biggest concern, which is that
we were proposing to have a new class of things we'd need to make

I'm still pretty uneasy about adding to the population of DISALLOWED,
but if people really want to do it, I think "Table 4 in UAX #31" would
be a good rule to generate the disallowed list.
