The purist can never prevent you from modifying your local copy of
greek.el :-)

    Q: Which block of Greek characters should I use?

    A: The answer to that is that it depends what you are doing. But
    generally, the basic Greek block plus the use of the generic combining
    marks in the Combining Diacritical Marks block (U+0300..U+036F) is the
    best approach to polytonic Greek support.
