Ah, the endless design discussions… Myself I prefer a consistent design
like Dejavu, over cobbling symbols of different designs, because they
used to be in separate fonts. Anyway:

OpenSymbol is incorrect (it suffers from the same pre-unicode bias as
R). However, it is, to my knowledge, actively maintained. You can ask
its upstream (LibreOffice) for Unicode conformance fixes if you find
problems. Especially when it’s just fixing the map of an existing
glyph, that should not be hard for them to fix. Anything PUA-related
won’t interoperate well in an unicode world.
(you can ask DejaVu too, maybe a request from a project like R will
wake up its maintainers. But, that’s a long shot. DejaVu suffers from
an almost done state without enough remaining work to interest
