Let an author come to me with that claim and I will allow it.  Mostly they 
don't have a clue to what their doing and consistency with their other 
papers (published where, that would allow, say Hom, to be in italics?).  I 
said, "more or less".

Anyway, I do get authors who say that don't like our theorem macros and 
want to use their own and I say "no way".  If we want to look like a 
journal, we have to have some consistent formatting requirements.  These 
are totally relaxed for our reprint series that often uses scanned 
versions of the original (and sometimes retyped versions, otherwise 
recompiled versions if it machine readable).
