SVG currently does not require for example to interprete MathML, 
therefore it would be strange to put elements from MathML into
an svg element appearing in a 'HTML5' document ;o)

I think, such container elements fit nicely into the currently
available multimedia containers like canvas, video, audio, object.
If the design of this group is adjusted a little bit, this approach
might be explainable to 'ordinary authors' ;o)
