for more context, see comments in bug 9859 -- in particular, this comment from

relevant excerpts from that:

[[
The HTML5 parser only allows <svg> or MathML in <annotation-xml>. Not HTML."

We could change the parser to allow HTML there (like it allows HTML in MathML
<mi>), but then it would break MathML in <annotation-xml>. The MathML spec has
an example with MathML in <annotation-xml>.

Maybe we need a special tag that enables HTML in <annotation-xml>? <div>? It
means MathML can't have a future element called <div>.

"A start tag whose tag name is "svg" or "div" if the current node is an
annotation-xml element in the MathML namespace."
