Sure is. You can see them by looking up something like "okagesamade"
in WWWJDIC using the Japanese-French file. The Japanese-German one there
currently uses the oe/ue/etc. convention, but I'll be changing to 
another file shortly which will have proper umlauts, etc.

Well, they are the only ones available for mixing Japanese and Latin
diacritics in a Japanese codeset. Only Unicode, or hybrids like ISO-2022
can mix them properly.
