Please note that for one area where you would assume that
dealing with "meaning" would be especially easy, the
character/glyph model that is the general base of
Unicode/ISO 10646 had to be changed somewhat (to
come closer to "glyph" than for other scripts) to
accomodate for present practice and user expectations.
Similar things may apply to math (or may not apply).
