You may rather want a feature / compat flag, so in case there is no good
migration between old-style and new-style then if you edit old-style
with 7.2, you want to keep that still as old-style.

Did you check if the existing mechanism Writer and Impress has would be
suitable for Math as well?

See sw/source/core/doc/DocumentSettingManager.cxx; there is also
sd/source/ui/docshell/docshel4.cxx, see the
SetAnchoredTextOverflowLegacy() call there.
