Quite a lot of the time I use <math> to embed expressions which include
mathematical symbols (greek letters mainly) in text, rather than whole
equations, and it is possible to imagine wanting these expressions to
be anchors. However if there was another way of presenting these symbols
then maybe <math> could be some kind of plug-in. However plug-ins have
to plug in to an awful lot of stuff. Its still a lot of work, just for
different people. I worry that if <math> is a plug-in it will be less
likely to be available for minority platforms (like my Acorn for
example).
