Becase if the characters are spread out in the font it takes forever to write a
"word" using Insert->Glyph (clicking and clicking), or you have to remember the
hex unicode chars.
Of course you can create keyboard shortcuts (at least in MS Word), but then you
get a non-standard way of inserting them.
For single special characters it's not as much pain, but for IPA I think you
usually want to write longer words with the special characters.
