Not certain I buy that.  I'm a font designer, I'm going to be designing 
the Creative Commons symbols, even if not in some "standard" way, at 
least in the style I envision for them, but CIRCLED EQUALS, a 
mathematics operator, will have different needs and I'll be designing it 
to comport well with mathematics, and that is very likely to be 
different from the CC symbols.
