Well, yes, but it is often very difficult to universalize any symbolic mathematical changes. Mathematicians prefer to use greek letters, too - mathematician Friedrich Gauss, I believe, was one who looked for new and intuitive ways of writing already-present symbols in mathematics and altering them slightly, by bolding or italicizing them, or enlarging them (i.e. product series notation). However, his notation was often overruled by Euler, Euclid, or other mathematicians, since his notation was often longer and shorter Greek letters were more preferred.

Although, I'd agree that Greek letters are frustrating in the sense that they must always have a statement to show what they mean. Greek letters in mathematics and physics differ so greatly; phi in mathematics is essential to us, as it is the symbol for what we know as the golden ratio (the true elegance of mathematics). Yet, in physics, it represents photon density (or a density of a said matter, or similar). I would assume that the same holds true for chemistry, and perhaps electromagnetism, which is a much more explored topic in the modern era.
