This was the accepted way of doing it. It was much more common and well known, when I came here 30 years ago as most systems did support foreign characters.
In fact in the computer readable strip on the passport that is how the name is transcribed, so if you ignore that and just leave off the diactric, you may end up with an inconsistent name. Which is also something the ESTA people don't like either.
