They do so, in their thousands.  Y&Y's market is discerning scientific
publishers and authors, and their selling point is high quality math,
both CMR and Lucida. I don't want to plug Y&Y particularly, but they
demonstrate that you can develop and market good math fonts for use
with TeX. The LaTeX PSNFSS package has extensive support for
Lucida. Of course, real purists will find stuff to carp about in
Lucida, and scaled fonts, but does anyone seriously suggest it isnt a
serious math typesetting face?

this discussion isnt going anywhere...
