As for programming languages, I have experimented (in a theorem
prover) using both Unicode symbols and ASCII names aside by side. My
conclusions is that this is a poor approach. Compare with the hassle
of C/C++ trigraphs. Better to only use Unicode symbols.
Then the next problem is to enter these symbols efficiently.
Developing ones own keyboard maps for the large numbers of math
symbols takes a lot of time.
So I think, best would be some set of Unicode keyboard maps, just
designed to enter the characters as efficiently as possible. These
might then move away from traditional QWERTY-like keyboard maps for
ASCII: ABCDEF seems the right thing, here. :-)
