Support for other minus signs entered in Numeric or Maple-graded response areas

It would be nice if instead of the hyphen, students could enter the proper minus sign or one of those listed at

and they were still marked correct.

Whilst a lot of other computation systems don't recognize the proper sign U+2212 in text boxes (e.g. Excel, Windows calculator), the alternatives are more commonly recognized and entered in international keyboards. Some conversion to the hyphen for Numeric or Maple-graded questions, or a warning of invalid syntax, would be helpful.
