Yes I was just musing really. I think using = is going to be the most natural markup however it's implemented. Using a different character would possibly have the advantage that you could make it stretchy by default, but that would be offset by the fact that = is so much easier to enter, and, as you say, probably fits with the semantic of the diagram as well.
