What was the rationale for that change?  preview-latex looks rather bad
when line breaks are put into math rather than outside.  And breaking
inline math across lines gratuitously does not help legibility either.

So I'd be interested in the rationale: the whole
LaTeX-fill-break-at-separators machinery was created because there was a
need for it in order to have documents maintain well under filling.  So
it seems weird to disable it by default, making it mostly accessible to
experts (namely avid manual readers and customizers) rather than people
who prefer to have things "just work" out of the box.
