SHARE decided that they were glyphs and not of sufficient generality to
warrant coding in 10646. I recall that IBM came to the same conclusions but
I cannot speak for IBM.

Here is the actual status, from the December 1998 UTC meeting:
2. Document L2/98-354, "Terminal Graphics for Unicode"
Status: deferred for additional information
The UTC has requested more information before it makes a decision.
Table 5.1, range of E080 to E087. The UTC has requested an official
position from IBM and feedback from SHARE on the glyphs used in the
area of a 3270 display.
Did the UTC ever receive the requested feedback?
