    It's not clear to me that portability would be universally expected or

    Let's face it, this base is not widely used by average people. Mathematical
    communities in a large number of script environments would use the Latin
    letters, not the native script. In order to find out what exceptions exist,
    it would make more sense to contact the mathematical communities directly.

    The information that we were able to access when we wrote UTR#25 is that
    use of characters outside Latin/Greek/Cyrillic is exceedingly uncommon in
    peer-reviewed publications on international level.
