Dear Murray,

Great to hear from you.

I can certainly appreciate that, and I definitely agree the two proposals are better considered separately.

What is the best way forwards on the Greek sans serif front? Would it be helpful for me to write some kind of broad summary of the issues currently and the benefits to adding the new blocks?

For what it is worth. as well as the logical reasons for including these blocks and that (La)TeX has always had (some) sans Greek glyphs available, after many queries with my colleagues I finally stumbled upon extant evidence of sans serif Greek in literature:

Courant, R.; Hilbert, D. (1953), Methods of mathematical physics, I, New York, N.Y.: Interscience Publishers, Inc., ISBN 0-471-50447-5, MR 0065391
