Those decompositions were in error, and have been fixed in Unicode 2.0 and the
new character database.

While we are on the topic of Greek Tonos, I was wondering about the
decompositions listed for some of the characters in 1.1. The 1.0
GREEK NON-SPACING TONOS (U+0384) was unified with
COMBINING VERTICAL LINE ABOVE (U+030D) in 1.1, and U+0384 changed to a
spacing tonos character.
The various greek letters precomposed with tonos marks are listed as being
decomposed with U+0384 which seems inconsistent with all the other
decompositions. Is there a good reason for this?
