I think it's a bad idea.

One can use
  \begin{EQUATION} · \end{EQUATION}
(where EQUATION is one's favorite math-construct) for that purpose.
With cdlatex, structure templates (org-structure-template-alist) or
key-chord.el it need not require much effort to insert such an
environment.  Thus, the pros seem trivial in my opinion.

OTOH, it's nice to have a inline display-math constructor, \[·\], and
the up-front cost of comparability-issues seems expensive.
