I'm not the expert, but maybe I know somethings that can help you :)

If I understood it correctly, it seems to be our OLD problem of adding
new symbols to Math. Currently we're using the OpenSymbol to draw the
Math symbols, and OpenSymbol don't have all Math symbols. Maybe we need
to exchange OpenSymbol (and do a LOT of tests on it, because OpenSymbol
is used in bullets too) to STIX fonts... just an idea. This topic is
very old, and we talked about this maybe 4 months ago, or more...

I believe yes. There are some parts of Math edit that we disables the
RTL support. Maybe we can add RTL support by changing all pieces of Math
that read/write data to edits... Math is a very small module so maybe
this is not a difficult task.

As I said above, maybe we can put this as an option.

It's nice to see that others guys are thinking about to improve Math :)

If I could help in this task, please let me know!

Sorry for the late reply...
