User setting for diacritics accuracy

Would it be possible to add a user setting (off by default) in our profile to choose whether we want diacritics and/or typos to be taken into account when evaluating the accuracy of an answer?

In Vietnamese, they are very important and a single diacritic often means the difference between two different words. It makes it harder to progress accurately when Duolingo assumes we learned a word, even though we are still confused about its exact spelling.
