I will do some experiments with that idea.

I get the information from \textfont1 (=letters=MSP). One question on
that: What is the preferred way to use the symbolic name `letters' instead
of the hardwired `1' ? Can I write \textfont\letters or something similar ?

Do you think that the setting of math spacing should also be preamble-only ?
