You're right, \text actually does all the required magic.

@MarcoDaniel I guess this depends on the community. For some reason, it seems that $$...$$ is de facto standard in Russia; I only recently learned of \[...\], and the old habits die hard.

@Werner Does not seem to be a duplicate for me. The question you gave link to is for a different problem, and I don't see how the answers could be applied to my problem.

It seems that \boxed is just a wrapper for \fbox under the hood, and, as such, faces the same problems (check out the updated question text).

comment How to draw a border around character in a formula?
This implies switching out of the math mode and then into it again; and, AFAIK, I have to define the formula style in $y$ depending of the specific place I want to use it. Isn't there any more user-friendly approach, that, at least, does not depend on where I use it (as long as it is in the math mode)?
