I would like to add to this poorly tested OpenType fonts (e.g. try using
decorative glyphs in Math PI fonts, they all map to same unicode value).

some bit of content indicators are now missing in TeX maths, which can be
easily implemented by slighlty modifying TeX (using PERL or Lova). Other
markups can be easily obtained using this content-enriched model. It is not
neccessary to use even a backslash TeX-like markup; some LISPish
implementation may be quite enough. You can use XML but then you need James
Clark's nxml-mode in emacs...
