I agree that D and L with Caron resembles D and L with apostrophe, or maybe rather, D and L with single quote mark (T with Caron should also be included here), but U and O with Horn are quite different where the "thing" is attached at the half-high level rather than detached at the full-high level.
If characters that resembles an apostrophe or carries something that looks like an apostrophe should be excluded then D, L and T with Caron are good candidates, but I do not think that U and O with Horn are.
(Comic Sans is a bad example here because the U and O with Horn comes from some other font/type face through font substitution.)

Subject: [Latingp] Apostrophe vs Caron and Horn
Here is a wordmark display of letters followed by apostrophe vs the same letters with caron or horn. See the Comment at the end of Section 5.4.
My sense is that, while side-by-side the difference is spacing is apparent, in a domain name a user would be unable to spot the difference. And thus, per the exclusion of punctuation and marks similar to punctuation, these code points ought to be excluded. (Personally, I don't think the exclusion of punctuation, except for periods, makes much sense. But that's the rule we are supposed to be following.)
