I do not think it is realistic. It may require models for various natural languages and for math expressions. It would be necessary to carefully track modifications of text to avoid performance degradation.

Example of false positive:

Till somebody will demonstrate reliable recognition of "$n$th" you may use zero-width space after "$" and an export filter that removes these separators.

Personally, I would prefer more strict syntax to avoid zero width spaces even if it will require more verbose markup.
