We accept LATIN CAPITAL LETTER OI for something that has no relation
to OI. In the larger world, we accept the United States of America for
a country that's far from uniting all the states of America. Names are
just names, and they're often less than accurate.

Perhaps how the character ought to look like has been defined long
ago. The art of the typographer requires working within the range of
what's currently acceptable.
