    That was not the issue. The issue is when font wanted to add 03D5 that they
    would not just put the opposite glyph into 03D5. Or just end up having a
    duplicate glyph. Fonts that have 03D5 by their nature should be intended
    for use with technical publishing and therefore are not (as) free in their
    choice of glyph for 03C6 as pure text fonts are.
