But as its display is outside of the scope of Emacs, it is mostly
academical for this discussion.

More interesting would be speculating about giving "calc" a better
formatted formula display: if you have compositions like in "Big mode"
(d B), then you can still put the cursor on elements and do selections
and so on.  If one were to render the stuff with TeX or similar
instead, how would one want to implement cursor navigation?
