    This made me wonder why
    U+0386 is encoded as U+1FBB as well
    ... (seven capital vowel letters)
    U+038F is encoded as U+1FFB,

    U+0390 as U+1FD3 as well,
    U+03CC as U+1F79 as well

    Sorry, I know this is Bnicode prehistory.
    But please give me a short answer or direct
    me to an old document/discussion/FAQ
