I'd go with Hepburn here: wa if it's a particle, ha if it's not.

Either way, there should be a rule for it. I'm in favor of using "n", because to me, it feels awkward to have a single "m" in romaji, while the pronounciation-shift could still be derived from seeing 'n' + next letter.

Ah, now you gave away the cause of this thread
(the creq itself - not to get an excuse to deny it)
In any case, there has to be a rule for ō vs. oh vs. oo/ou. So that we can avoid the chaos of having all different kinds of romanizations.

Well, it's not like I totally made this up. Though not exactly a reliable source for proper spelling or grammar, the suggestions are heavily influenced from fansubs. In my experience, these modifications of Hepburn are being used (in fansubs), just without having been written down.
