Question about InputField

The problem is as follows. Start with

DynamicModule[{v = Null}, {InputField[Dynamic[v]], Dynamic[v]}]

Now, enter a disjunction "pvq" by typing p+Esc||Esc+q in the returned InputField. When you click outside, the expression pvq is reformatted to p||q -- while I want to see pvq.

One solution that I found is to use

DynamicModule[{v = Null}, {InputField[Dynamic[v], Boxes], 

But I´m not satisfied with it. What if I just want to put expressions in an InputField for which there is no rules for ToExpression? (Just presentation, not content.) Any ideas?
