You probably refer to AGL 2.0, published in September 2002.
Hardwired in XEP is AGL 1.2; no glyph named "Ohm" was listed
there. Moreover, AGL 1.2 had inverse duplicates: two Unicodes
might correspond to a single glyph name, but not vice versa.
Migrating to AGL 2.0 is not a mechanical task: there are too may
incompatible changes there. To stay with your example: AGL 1.2
recommended "Omega" for both 0x2126 (Ohm sign) and 0x03A9
(Greek capital omega). AGL 2.0 has "Ohm" and "Omega" as
synonyms for 0x2126, and prescribes "Omegagreek" for 0x03A9.
We definitely plan to shift to 2.0 in some not very distant future;
but it requires some caution, and will inevitably take more time.
