Dear Dale,
thanks for the good information.
By the way, have you thought about why only the aorist and future
have passive forms different from middle forms, whereas the present and
imperfect have middle/passive forms?

One hypothesis is that in the present/imperfect there is no need to
distinguish the passive from the middle, whereas in the future/aorist,
there is need to distinguish the passive from the middle for some
