No "transliteration" at all? Can't you programme your keyboard to  
insert these characters instead of those Apple as set as default when  
pressing the Option (alt) key?

Another option would be Character Palette. It can save your  
"favorites" so that you do not need to search through the character  
blocks of Unicode.

Then there is the US extended keyboard layout (U.S. flag with a U  
below). It has some interesting dead keys which allow to create  
characters like this ħāšṡḷĕ ...

Finally you can choose the Unicode hex input keyboard layout (U+  
symbol). While holding down the Option (alt) key you can input 1234  
which will result in ሴ or 0245 (Ʌ) or ...
