The current aim is to allow for a so called= "intelligent math object" that could be dragged and dropped into a consen= ting math application (spread sheets, symbolic or numeric computation engines, and so on). This transfer of a mathematical expression implies t= hat the exact semantics of such expressions must be preserved. Currently the OpenMath effort is hopping to fill such a void.
