Even at the expense of continued difficulties and confusion? Wouldn't
it be far simpler just to change it and be done with it?

The only hard, independent evidence I have seen on the issue is the
TESS database the USPTO maintains:
http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=login&p_lang=english&p_d=trmk -
the only two entries I get for Numerical AND AXIOM are both listed as
dead. I'm not an expert of course, so the folks at NAG may know
something I don't.

Interesting.
