In this example there is no kerning and no ligatures in the math:

 WAiff $\mfunction{WAiff}$

This is a different behaviour than with legacy math fonts. 

A question about this has been asked some month ago on tex.sx
The problem (or feature) exist also with xetex. 

With luatex one can avoid to loose the kerning by loading as math
roman font a font in mode base
I have no idea how to do this in context).

Is this a luatex/xetex bug? Or a feature? How could one enable
kerning and/or ligatures without going back to base mode?
