You are right. Amaya only implements the presentation markup, i.e.
chapter 3 of the MathML 2.0 recommendation:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-MathML2-20021219/chapter3.html

The main reason is that the emphasis in Amaya is put on the editing
feature and, given the limited resources available, it seems preferable
from the author viewpoint to start with presentation MathML.

Obviously it would be interesting to also implement the content part
of MathML. Contributions in that direction are welcome, but the Amaya
team presently lacks resources.

Amaya is not a reference implementation. The goal is not to fully implement
all W3C specifications but to demonstrate how these specifications can
work together in a Web client able to browse, edit and publish Web pages.
What is implemented is supposed to follow the W3C recomendations, but
not everything is implemented yet.

These error messages just indicate that the content tags are
not supported.

Yes, Amaya allows you to author Web pages containing conformant MathML.
That means that every MathML expression created with Amaya is valid, but
Amaya does not allow you to create every possible MathML expression (in
particular content MathML).

Thanks for your comments,
