    I rather thought that the basic Latin characters, and some Greek ones,
    are already available at least as superscripts, scattered around in
    various places - many in the Phoentic Extensions block at 1D00, a few
    under Superscripts and Subscripts at 2070. It would certainly make sense
    to fill in the holes in these sets, which are useful not just for the
    specific phonetic uses for which they have been defined.
