Sorry, it was awkwardly phrased. These glyphs are positioned at G+03f4 and
G+03f5 (using Marco's new syntax :-) in the font. Whether these happen to be
physical positions in the font or map through a cmap to physical positions in
the font, adjustments can be done elsewhere in the font to make the
character->glyph mapping work correctly.
