I think this method will allow a plugin to support links (going out of
the math to some URL) work, but will not help with anchors embedded
within the math (not just attached to the math element as a whole) to
which links from the same or other documents can point. Fortunately
this is a feature which can be lived without at first, by making each
numbered equation a separate math element, and doing without links to
pieces within these elements.
