What about this:
The UTC should undo the glyph swapping and introduce a new character
called U+03F7 GREEK ALTERNATIVE PHI SYMBOL. Then we would have
U+03C6 GREEK SMALL LETTER PHI (any glyph shape)
U+03D5 GREEK PHI SYMBOL (curly glyph)
U+03F7 GREEK ALTERNATIVE PHI SYMBOL (stroked glyph)
and no problem with backwards compatibility.
[But I assume that this solution has been already suggested and
apparently rejected in favor of the current one.]
