Dreadfully archaic

I finally look a took at Bringhurst's "glossary of characters" and he states that the ligatures æ and œ are required in English, but only for "Deliberate archaism and pedantically correct quotation". I would guess that Bringhurst would probably not endorse my proposed "qu" ligature, but I'll perhaps ask anyway.

And for the curious, æ is called an "aesc" and œ is called an "ethel".
