We can limit it to a certain number of characters and expand it, like when
the width of table columns is limited.

BTW: I don’t find that prettify-symbols-mode with (setq
prettify-symbols-unprettify-at-point 'right-edge) ruins the reading flow.
On the contrary, I would love to port org-entities to use this
functionality for at display in buffers.


Together we will make the possible totalllly impossible!
