 is not a valid LaTeX environment.

I think we are way too concerned with$ anyway.  If $is not "appropriate", we should just insert it anyway, maybe with a warning. And I think we should _definitely_ stop the$\$ doubling stuff in LaTeX
mode: it just helps people to produce invalid LaTeX.  For plain TeX,
it is of course appriate, and for ConTeXt I don't have a clue.

Followups directed to auctex-devel, since this is something that
