Actually, I have the impression that OMDoc[1] might respond to most of 
the requests...

Among others, it provides structuring at a higher level than at the 
formula level, it provides, with this, an architecture to declare new 
symbols and to define them, and it supports stylesheet-enrichments for 
new symbols.

At least for these aspects, I think that it is a good choice which 
follows the principle of "pure content" encoding as we are doing it 
within the ActiveMath[2] learning environment.
