Good advice, which I strongly endorse.
Surely it is only in a few cases, such as textual variants, grammatical 
queries involving differing forms, antecedents etc that transliteration is 
required, and then only the relevant terms rather than chunks of text?

Should we not take it as a given on a list named B-GREEK that the text, 
either in printed or electronic form, is to hand?
