it should certainly not be MathComposite as it is clearly not a math
parallel but rather the math opposite of \DeclareTextComposite.

but i wonder if Compound gives the right clue? essentially what we
want to say is "here is a symbol which is unfortunately internally
being made of bits and pieces"

so it is still a symbol and the fact that it is made this way is just
technical. therefore i would think \DeclareMath...Symbol would be imho
a better choice. now what to put in ... i don't quite know.

\DeclareMathConstructedSymbol   ??? 

would be quite a mouth full but perhaps you have a better idea
