Probably, yes.  

Since I know nothing about Cyrillic encodings, I simply picked `z' 
as the most generic codes for Cyrillic from variant.map (same for
Greek encodings).  If you know better, you're welcome to correct me.

BTW:  If you're doing an update, don't forget about similar cases
in monotype.map and linotype{,-cd}.map.
