I think there are two wholly separate problems (for the purpose of
establishing a mathematical encoding and typesetting standard): Firstly,
classifying the symbols and give them well-classified names, and second,
give them names which are mathematically suitable in different mathematical

  I think the font encoding problem should mainly concentrate on the first
one, especially when it comes down to symbols like arrows which have no
well established fixed general meaning.
