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 ($x$).


With monopolies the cake is a lie!
