Maybe. The problem is that if a good font is not installed yet, ignoring Latin 
Modern Math means replacing huge lines with square boxes. I'm not sure which 
one is best. Ignoring Latin Modern Math may be better because fixing the square 
boxes then only requires installing a new font (while fixing the line heights 
requires installing a new font /and/ setting up fontsets in Emacs). But 
ignoring Latin Modern Math is also more confusing (the symbols will display 
fine in user's web browsers, but not in Emacs). The unearthing of 
`face-ignored-fonts' likely makes this an easy change; do you have an opinion 
either way?
