Review of Section 5 of the MathML last call draft.

Comment 1 (editorial errors):

5.4.1 2nd last line in the first <xsl:template> example lacks an "m:"
5.4.3 3rd last line in the <xsl:template> example lacks an "m:"

Comment 2: 5.3.3

The methods described appears to, potentially, be quite compute
intensive in finding the corresponding math fragments. Should more
restrictions be defined? For example, requiring the order of the
"xref"s to be the same as for the "id"s (in order not to have to
search all siblings to determine if there is a match between an xref
and and id). Typically XML engines would index the IDs, but not the
references to these IDs. Could one reverse the usage of id and xref
so speed up the processing?
