Rather than editing a style sheet, I think it would be better to use 
Style to turn off SingleLetterItalics locally. In TraditionalForm, x 
formats in italics because of SingleLetterItalics->True. To get x to 
format in plain, just use Style:

x //TraditionalForm

vs

Style[x, SingleLetterItalics->False] //TraditionalForm

If you change the Core style sheet, then all TraditionalForm expressions 
will have a Plain FontSlant which is probably not what you want.
