Why not just merge Minion with MnSymbol and create a new font if virtualisation is tricky? Of cause you cannot redistribute the new font but you could distribute a fontforge script which does the merge. This way you could create an OpenType Math font with greek already in the right slots. Maybe also merge with Cronos to get sans math into the font.
