Also the only upright letters I saw was for inserting normal text (not mathematical symbols) or comments/descriptions, or when using the standardized "monospace", or "serif" font (which are not italic by default).

Most use a macro package like ConTeXt, which is more recent and modern than LaTeX, and it is not difficult to change so that the Basic Latin produces math upright style. But legacy is that it is used for math italic, and it is hard to change that legacy.
