As I understand it, things like Math (and Music for that matter) are
covered by several guidelines:

  Where possible use w3c spec - that means mathML

  Where it is not possible to make accessible version using 'real
technology' provide alternative
  Provide descriptions for <everything that is an object>

There is no specific discussion in the Guidelines. I think there doesn't
need to be - it belongs in techniques.

  In the updated issue lists for the gl group I didn't see any guidelines or
  techniques related to math or science.  
  
  Is the intention of the page authoring guidelines not to address these issues?
