I'm sure Joram is not speaking of formulas but of superscript in plain text 
paragraphs. And I don't see why we shouldn't take LaTeX with its decades of 
typesetting experience as a model for the plain text parts of LilyPond scores.

If LilyPond scores contain text areas they should of course look good,  and 
there is much room for improvement here.
