there is no need to resolve a pb which does not exist: there is no
\ifmmode and there is no expansion since i use the "mltex" option and
thus inputed chars belong to category "letter".

ok, so you have to change the original title "Providing math support
for inputenc" IMHO. I'm afraid that if text chars can't be all used in math
it will be of least interest.
