These three won't cause any problem as you noted.

FF3C is compatibilitily mapped to 005C. So everything is fine.

As far as I know, all existing CP437 tables map those to SMALL SHARP S
(U+00DF) and SMALL EPSILON (U+03B5) and not SMALL BETA or ELEMENT OF.
I just checked everywhere I could, this is the list:
Can you point me to anywhere disagreeing?
So you are suggesting that if one wants to use CP437 as the underlying
encoding, conform to IDNA RFCs, and then dives into Unicode charts for
finding the characters of CP437 instead of using tables he can find on the
net, he is in a real mess. I agree! The only thing we are disagreeing on
is the real source of the mess. :-)
