ISCII 1991 Annex-G "Extended Character Set for Vedic" contains the following

A1 Visarga1
A2 Filler
A3 Yajurvedic Anusvara1
A4 Yajurvedic Anusvara2
A5 Shukla Yajurvedic Anusvara
A6 Yajurvedic Anusvara3
A7 Yajurvedic Anusvara4
A8 Visarga2
A9 Visarga3
AA Visarga4
AB Visarga5
AC Jivamuliya
AD Krishna Yajurvedic Anusvara
AE Krishna Yajurvedic Long Anusvara
AF Yajurvedic Anusvara5
B0 Yajurvedic Anusvara6
B1 Yajurvedic Anusvara7
B2 Short Kampa
B3 Long Kampa
B4 Jatya Svarita-Arthaveda
B5 Svarita
B6 Long Svarita
B7 Kampa
B8 Anudatta
B9 Jatya Svarita (Shukla Yajurveda)
BA Jatya Svarita (Maitrayaniya)
BB Sentence ending Udatta
BC Jatya Svarita (Non-Taittiriya Yajurveda)
BD Svarita (Maitrayaniya)
BE Anudatta (Kathaka)
BF Abbreviation Sign

Of these B8 Anudatta appears to have already been encoded at U+0952 and BF
Abbreviation Sign is already encoded as U+0970.

How do the rest of the Vedic Characters in ISCII Annex-G correspond to the Vedic
Characters in the proposed code chart and names list ?
