If the roadmap document on the Unicode page says this was rejected by
WG2, then it is incorrect and needs updating. [I haven't looked to verify
this either way as I have limited internet access from my current location.]

My understanding from the Unicode side is that we are waiting to see
what Greece submits to WG2 to provide further information on how these
characters would be employed in implementations. I am not aware of any
attempts to contact "Unicode experts" but I won't rule this out. I do
know that no action item is currently outstanding in the Unicode Technical
Committee for any work in this area.

As I said above, the UTC, like WG2, is waiting on additional feedback from
Greece as requested by WG2.
