  Are you sure you really need \c{a}, not \aogonek?  I'm not aware of any
language that would use cedillas on vowels, whereas ogonek is used in several
languages to indicate nazalisation (starting with Polish, of course).

  In Mark II the character is built by stacking boxes, which you usually don't
want in Mark IV if there is a glyph available in the font (but I doubt you will
find many fonts with such a glyph, see below).

  There is no single Unicode character for a with cedilla anyway, you would
have to use combining characters.
