It "works" basically only for English (note that any diacritics would be
placed suitable for math, not for words, and then there are Latin letters
that do not have a decomposition (like ø), and then there is of course
Cyrillic, and a whole slew of non-Latin scripts. So, no, they do NOT AT
ALL "seem well qualified". And... We already have a well-established
standard for doing this kind of things...
