So the basic claim that started this issue is no longer valid?  IOW,
this assertion:

  As of 2016, the latest versions of Unicode (as of 2016) have now
  formally deprecated and removed the vowel+oxia combinations from the
  Greek extended range, leaving only the vowel+tonos from the basic Greek
  and Coptic range.

is not really accurate?

"C-x RET 8" would be the immediate answer, IIUC.

But I'm still studying the issue, so maybe I'm missing something.
