Again, this is a presentation issue that doesn't require any new control
characters. There is absolutely no reason, for instance, why an app
couldn't be created that lays out Greek text in boustrophedon using the
existing Greek characters.
Of course, boustrophedon layout isn't needed to ensure legibility of
Greek text; if it was, though, the solution would be to say that correct
implementations of the Greek block required boustrophedon layout in the
app, and not addition of new control characters.
