As a personal comment, I think that it would be most desirable for html5 to
reference mathml3 (or simply the latest version of mathml)
mathml3 is being developed along a similar timeline as html5, and any issues
that help integration will be addressed on the mathml side in mathml3, mathml2
being essentially frozen.

To give one specific example; html5 draft currently includes all the "mathml"
entity definitions. these are the definitions in mathml3 not mathml2.
mathml3/html5 definitions take advantage of recent changes to unicode (and also
fix some anomalies in the mathml2 ones).

MathML3 also includes specific support for directionality (via an html-like dir
attribute) which will be important for html+mathml documents in some locales.
