I would argue that the pronunciation of symbols should most certainly be 
handled by the synthesizer rather than any intermediate layer. Letting 
the intermediate layers handle symbol pronunciation will only cause lots 
of problems similar to the "tiflda" problem we have in Speakup to this 
day. Most synthesizers have no trouble pronouncing the ~ (tilde) 
character, but they all get it horribly wrong using Speakup, because the 
pronunciation is hard coded in Speakup itself, and is quite wrong for 
most speech synthesizers.
