Note that,
(with-temp-buffer (insert "$x$") (require 'ox-latex)
(org-latex-export-as-latex nil nil nil t)) => \(x\)
Just out of curiosity, do you actually type \(·\) or have you somehow
remapped $·$ to insert \(·\)?
For me the biggest inconvenience of \(·\) is that it's tedious to
type. On my keyboard, M-< S-8 M-< gives me \(\), compare to M-4 M-4
(which I could probably limit to M-4 with electric-pair-mode). Thus,
I use $·$ by default.
I usually just rely on whether my expression get the colored by
org-latex-and-related. In most cases that's a good indicator, but it
does not work with ($x$).
