I think I missed something here. Why do we want a separate encoding from
the text encodings for things like \log etc? They *are* words! Imho (though
this is not the topic of MFD) \log etc should be set in a text
font---family zero if the designer so decides, or perhaps some other
family, but a text family nonetheless.
