Sure. And many mathematical symbols should have a “math-centerline base”.
However, the font files I’m working with do not have the information
about where these extra baselines are (or any per-script details); so
I do not care about them at the moment.
So my question was about the “compatible with European scripts”
baseline (this is why I put it near uppercase/lowercase; probably I
needed to be more explicit).
P.S.: in more details: I’m merging a (lousily autogenerated) font
which has a complete 6.3 BMP (Unifont + my α-level beautifier)
with a (well designed) font which supports European scripts (but
even them incompletely: DejaVu). So the only mismatches may
appear in the scripts supported by both.
P.P.S.: However, I presume that in technical writing, the notion of
script is not so set in stone; character/words from one
script would pepper the text as “symbols” inside a running
“human language” text (as Greek does in math-in-Latin, and
Greek and Latin do in math-in-Cyrillic).
Do not know how this is handled inside
