Hmm, this last point is a bit of a concern.
Sure, the font might have maths italic letters in plane 1 somewhere,  
but how is (Xe)TeX going to know to put those in when it sees "x+y+z"  
in maths mode?

Are we going to have to make every letter math-active?
Or, now that I just think of it, will font mappings come to our rescue?
