It appears not, from what I could find out.

For now, if you need to use XeTeX, you'd have to avoid any non-ASCII
characters in anything written to an auxiliary file, e.g. use @"u
instead of ΓΌ - that would be in section titles and index entries.

In theory, it should be possible to write out @U sequences to the
auxiliary files wherever a non-ASCII character is used. I won't be
working on this myself.

Maybe. I don't have anything to add to what's been said earlier in
this discussion.
