Why*wouldn't*  you make separate font 'objects' for fundamental

Those have semantically different, well-delimited functions. An arrow, however, can occur in any direction, and it seems that the Feta glyphs were not designed for use as actual text glyphs, but in close conjunction with the _graphic_ markup command \arrow-head, currently choosing one of four directions. And for a command to be used in graphics, I think rotation would be appropriate.
