# What really prevents us from enabling LaTeX markup?

While not necessary for every question, LaTeX markup capability would greatly enhance the ability to clearly write some questions and answers in the personal finance and money stackexchange. This would allow clean and clear math, symbols, and tables.

This question was asked a number of years ago here and the top answer suggests that the overhead is significant. Another answer suggests that using $as a delimiter will mess a lot of people up. However, a later answer indicates that empirically, the overhead is actually negligible and the confusion issue is easily addressed by using \$ as the delimiter instead.

This question and all the answers are years old and in my view the objections have not aged well.

My question is this: Who makes the decision about utility of a feature versus costs of the overhead? Where do we submit input on the subject? The desirability of a change seems clear to me but I'm not sure whether it's being considered. Is anything aside from inertia really keeping us from enabling this feature?
