I can assure you that 1E20 and the l.c. companion 1E21 are very clearly used
by Wehr in his Arabic Dictionary.
As to U+011F or U+0121, I see that Socin, in his old Arabic Grammar (1895),
uses U+011F for jim U+062C, and the U+0121 for ghain U+063A. Wright, Arabic
Grammar, as old as Socin, also uses U+0121 for ghain U+063A. It may be that
these usages of a century ago survive in some quarters even today.
