Every text font that may possibly be used in math would have to be re-encoded, and the only benefit of this would come if the re-encoded font really had the uppercase Greek rather than empty slots. Except in the case of cm it is not clear where such matching Greek will come from. I think that being able to use text fonts (with the current text encoding, be it T1 or OT1 or 8r or LY1 or...) in math as \mathsf \mathit etc is a good thing to aim for. Thus I would like to aim for that first, and investigate possibilities for accessing uppercase (and lowercase) Greek in different styles within that framework as a `first attempt'. An encoding that mixes Greek and Roman in the same font is likely only to ever be used by cm and in that case there is not so much to be gained by having a `standard' math encoding as all non cm math setups would necessarily use a non standard encoding.
