I am aware of the problem, but I don't know any elegant solution to it at 
the moment. It is even worse in Sans, where it isn't limited to slanted 
variant.

A similar situation arises in Sans with the U+0261 LATIN SMALL LETTER 
SCRIPT G, which looks identical like the U+0067 LATIN SMALL LETTER G. In 
Serif, you don't have any such problems in the upright variant, but in 
Italic you have the same as with U+0251.

It is tempting to blame IPA for choosing typographic variants of existing 
letters for their symbols, but in the end we will have to deal with the 
existing situation.

With kind regards,
Primoz
