Does anybody know why "oxia" and its combinations (Greek Extended: U+1FFD, U+1FEE, U+1FBB, U+1FC9, U+1FCB, U+1FDB, U+1FF9, U+1FEB, U+1FFB, U+1FD3, U+1FE3, U+1F71, U+1F73, U+1F75, U+1F77, U+1F79, U+1F7B, U+1F7D) are also coded as "tonos" and combinations (Greek: U+0384, U+0385, U+0386, U+0388, U+0389, U+038A, U+038C, U+038E, U+038F, U+0390, U+3B0, U+03AC, U+03AD, U+03AE, U+03AF, U+03CC, U+03CD, U+03CE), although there is no apparent grammatical reason and the glyphs should be identical?
