    Both of these were in the Unicode 1.0 repertoire, so the
    answer lies in the sources of repertoire for that. In
    particular, I note:

    XCCS 1980: 356/056 Arabic decimal point
               356/054 Arabic thousands separating delimiter

    These characters were used in the Xerox Star implementation
    of Arabic, if I am not mistaken.
