i believe that the small triangles in cmmi were intended by knuth to be used as variant bullets (the texbook exercises are "bulleted" with small solid triangles, and in some of our publications these open ones are indeed used for that purpose), and they also are put together to form a "bowtie". for the latter, they definitely shouldn't be replaced by something bigger, but for the former, if they were in the companion font, that would be okay for our use. -- bb
