Thanks for this information.
I had understood, years ago, from the text in the Unicode manual alone
that U+026A was the lowercase of U+0197 and believed that the references
to ISO 6438 were intended to indicate the source for this surprising
case pairing. Nothing in the manual indicates that this is intended
instead to reference an alternate case pairing. So I was somewhat
surprised recently to discover that some current software supported the
more obviously logical pairing.
Thanks also to the others who responded to my point.
