I have meanwhile looked at the font. The glyphs that are substituted are
named beta.ipa etc. And at least beta.ipa is of the typical IPA form
with a serif at the descender, which I wouldn't like to use for
mathematics. AFAIK there is no defined language/script tag for IPA,
though various fonts from SIL use script=latn, language=IPA.
