Maybe I could rig a way to provide small caps by means of diacritics.

The Greek Extended range is a bit of a disaster itself, to my mind. These code points are a historical accident -- the whole range should have been handled with diacritics anyway.

So the idea would be to first decompose each of those glyphs into a letter plus diacritics, then apply the mapping to small cap form. That might not be too terrible. Still, it would take days. (Making small cap forms for each glyph in the range would be -- excessive.)

The Extended Greek Range (for polytonic purposes) lacks small caps glyphs.
