Well, this would definitely be useful and I would use such a feature.
However, one of the powers of LaTeX comes from piling on the macros... So,
this would only really work with vanilla equations, UNLESS you had an
additional service which was "TeX -> EPDF in environment..."  where you
could specify a file that had the declarations. Even better _still_ would
be to create an object that could be embedded into graphic apps that would
allow you to edit the equation in place.
