I agree that that suggestion is quite arcane.

But using altgr-'<' and altgr-'>' to generate suitable less-or-equal
and greater-or-equal characters would not at all be arcane IMO. I
think less-or-equal/greater-or-equal (whichever variant one chooses
for a particular keyboard layout) are that important. Much more
important on a keyboard than odd characters like AKTIESELSKAB and
TIRONIAN SIGN ET... Using an IME for the less-or-equal/greater-or-
equal would be technological overkill, I think.
