In the form proposed the math markup language is very awkward. One perhaps
will have to convert from LaTeX and then reedit MMML manually. Compare
LaTeX syntax to MMML:

LaTeX:  (x+2)^2

MMML:

<MSUP>
  <MROW>
    <MF>(</MF>
      <MROW> 
        <MI>x</MI> 
        <MO>+</MO>
        <MN>2</MN> 
      </MROW> 
    <MF>)</MF>
  </MROW> 
  <MN>2</MN>
</MSUP>


I don't want to type MMML, no way. It's ridiculous.
