Well, I didn't think about that very long, I just raised them
to the baseline (ie depth = 0), since I didn't know any better.
The question here is, I think, if non-TeX software might have
any special expectations about the positioning of the radical

I did in fact have them in MS1 or MS2 sometime back, but then
moved them to MSP for design similarity reasons. But since 
these glyphs seem to be not present in any layout so far, it
might be better to move them to MS2 and make room for some more
widely implemented glyphs in MSP.

Yes, perhaps, I may have thought about `do not use glyphs for
more than one purpose' when I put them there.

You mean the EXT in the arrowkit?
