PV> Really not! Those types of documents already use file formats
PV> Plain-text only formats are not convenient to place figures
When you need only 2 use cases,
you bring (with markup language) so much use cases,
quantity of which is much more 2.
PV> there are many uncounted conventions used in mathematics
Pay attention, not all formulas in general,
but the _most primitive and wide-spread_ formulas.
PV> probably as many as mathematicians
You are not understanding here: not mathematicians !!!
PV> then you'll need internal markup
Not logic conclusion.
This discourse is not consecutively.
What is symptomatic:
you say against mathimatical novations in plain text
in topic of less-often-used root and fraction,
instead of topic of much-often-used indexes and limits.
PV> some sort of "ASCII Art"
It's squalor (shabbiness).
PV> For mathematical formulas
PV> either you want to render them in their original bi-dimensional layout
PV> ... so plain-text will not work
