Hi.

> One problem I see is that string constants do not have their own tag.

Note that the <ms> tag from presentation markup is for string
constants.  You could mixed these tokens with content extensions as
Stan suggested, eg.

<apply>
<csymbol definitionURL="concat"/>
<ms>abc</ms>
<ms>def</ms>
</apply>

is also valid, if a bit perverse, MathML.
