    I thought Michael had answered the question: Greek CHI RHO (U+2627) and
    Coptic KHI RO (U+2CE9) are encoded separately because they belong to
    different scripts, sort of like Latin P and Greek Π and Cyrillic П.
    U+2627 is commonly identified as a symbol made up of two Greek letters,
    although it is not encoded in the Greek block.
