> About keeping the meaning of the text content, from the math point of view, a A with fraktur style should have the same meaning as the transformed character MATHEMATICAL FRAKTUR CAPITAL A' (U+1D504). Or at least a11y tools should find some way to indicate that it is a fraktur A and not a normal A. 

That's a good point, and is different from how we want assistive text to expose text-transform changes to case.  It doesn't mean it isn't do-able, it just means that the accessible version of the transformed text needs to be clearly defined. You'd want to get input from people who work on tools that expose math to screen readers and Braille display and so on, to find out how they implement it.
