Here is a little problem from my work: We have an axial coupling constant, conventionally called $g_A$. However, in this combination the `A' does not really look subscript. After some experimenting, I came up with the following: $g_{\text{\sc A}}$ which looks fine. That the `A' is now upright is not that bad in this case, in fact it is not a mathematical symbol but has textual semantics. I think this little problem should have a more general solution. I imagine a style which prescribes different sizes for subscripts, depending if a lowercase letter is subscripted or a capital one. Since I have not tried it, I don't know how difficult to achieve this might be. Just to provoke ideas... --J"org Knappen.
