Not a LyX bug. With "safeguard", I only mean the feadback by the compilation
error if the editor/maintainer uses a feature requiring an additional package.
If we decide now to allow this, we should set the options to "auto".
I agree that this is a (small) benefit for the documentation people with a
negligible impact on the average user.
I.e. I am in favour of setting the math-package settings to "auto".
