Comments to Last Call from Opera Sofware:

MathML does a good job of catering both to those striving for content
markup, as well as the presentation-oriented markup. The level of
abstraction of the presentation-oriented markup is still high enough
to allow for media-independent presentations.

MathML 2.0, however, contains some visual warts that should be removed
or deprecated: the so-called "CSS-compatible attributes". They were
also present in MathML 1.0, but neither place have thier position been
justified. Style sheets provide a much cleaner way of moving futher
down towards presentation. Also, having a third level of abstraction
(in addition to the content and presentation-oriented elements) seems
a bit too much.
