As discussed in a recent thread[fn:1], \[...\] constructs are
counter-intuitive to some users.

At the time being, \[...\] are inline-able. As a consequence, they are
can be written in the middle of a line, and filled, much like \(...\).
Even though it is also possible to inline them in a LaTeX document, the
intent is to make them stand out in their own lines.

The current proposal is to make them elements instead of objects in Org
syntax (i.e, a `latex-environment' instead of a `latex-fragment'). In
a nutshell:

  - Pros:
    + conform to LaTeX intent,
    + impossible to fill.
  - Cons:
    - documents containing \[...\] mid-line will be broken (such
      constructs will not be recognized anymore).
