I'm looking for a reference to the Unicode encoding of the 60 or so
most commonly cited syllabic characters used in the Inuktitut language.

I know Canadian Syllabics are encoded in the block U+1400 to U+167F, but
I can't tell just from the character names in UnicodeData-3.0.0.beta.txt
which are the 'typical' characters and which are not. Even with a
glyph chart, it might be tough to pick the correct 60 from a block of
640 characters.

The characters I have in mind are depicted in a chart at

I'm hoping someone like Michael Everson might have a reference to this.
