Yes but (unless I broke them) the "publisher" entries in the file are 
historical data relating to publishers internal character tables as 
input data to forming
the stix submission to unicode so I'm not sure I can change them now 
(but on the other hand they are not really that useful to anyone apart 
from historians:-)

Yes I think I'm going to drop the "nameless" <latex> entries and  try to 
maintain entries like the new  ones that specifically reference a latex 
package such as
unicode-math so that if you load that package (or say you are emulating 
that package) the names should work (even if one can argue about the 
actual names)
