I think no. I used µ as a simulation of eng character. The only reason for
this is that I find ñ used sometimes for this purpose extremely misleading,
as I'm accustomed to see it in Spanish for [J].

I liked it too even though it was invented just on spot. I'm going to use it
in Latin translit of my recently conceived project, provisionally labelled
as CLP41. µ resembles eng very much, and is included in most Latin encodings
at the same code point AFAIK.

Indeed that would be too weird...
