The current set of glyphs in Liberation should be sufficient to Greek users.

Greek Polytonic and other Ancient characters should be useful to 
a. Scholars that study Classics and Ancient Greek (mostly Universities around
the world)
b. People that study Biblical Greek. For example, see
http://www.nerdlets.org/category/greek/
c. Modern Greek replaced Greek Polytonic in 1981. There are people who continue
to use Polytonic, as shown at http://www.polytoniko.org/

For a sample of users, see
http://simos.info/blog/archives/639

As a priority, I would consider Greek Polytonic to be 'Low priority' (I can
only change Severity in this Bugzilla, not Priority).
