Thanks for the update, David.

This looks like a relevant reference that I hadn't spotted when I
sent my original message

"a mapping of characters to standard entity  sets commonly used
 for SGML and MathML documents."
"*NOT* formally part of the Unicode Character Database at this
 time"
http://unicode.org/Public/math/revision-09/MathMap-9.txt

but phiv and straightphi are listed with the old code points, and
thus conflicting with 

http://www.unicode.org/unicode/reports/tr25/#_Toc231

despite both documents having revision date 2007-05-07.


imath and jmath are assigned to 1D6A4 and 1D6A5 but I
understand there's pros and cons there.


The following lines are also of interest:

27C8;	bsolsub;	**;	**	# ⟈	REVERSE SOLIDUS PRECEDING SUBSET
27C9;	subsol;	**;	**	# ⟉	SUPERSET PRECEDING SOLIDUS

These look related to bsolhsub (U0005C-02282) and suphsol
(U02283-0002F) in unicode.xml but that doesn't (necessarily) mean
that there's any need to change the entities.
