Please note that there is ongoing effort to harmonize entity definitions
between various markup vocabularies, see:


Ideally, any new vocabulary like HTML5 should either don't define
entities at all or provide complete set as defined in:


sub1-3 are currently not defined so you should first try to convice Math
WG which is preparing this document. But it would be silly to have
different entity sets available in HTML and MathML if they can be
embeded inside each other.
