I was going to say that 
"this is being addressed in the DTD currently under construction"
but I seem to have said that too often on this list lately.

So I may as well tell you that the updated DTD is actually being
constructed on a public (but so far unannounced) page

http://www.w3.org/Math/DTD

with most of the documentation being in

http://www.w3.org/Math/characters

Please note that these pages are automatically constructed from the
working copies in our CVS repository and may change at __any__ time. They
should not be taken as definitive in any way. Once they have been
debugged we may update the errata document, as we recently did for the
MathML DOM, to sate that these files should be considered updates to the
versions in the recommendation, but currently they are just under trial
and some features of the new DTD may be removed altogether.

The documentation on this point about phi is currently a bit sparse, it
is in fact:

"something about phi"

Partly because what exactly we say depends on whether the HTML group
decide to do anything about the (X)HTML entity of the same name.
