You could use an XSLT sheet to transform tg in your "MathML-Romania" documents
to tan in "MathML-W3C" documents....  I think this should be a common way to
extend MathML, but I don't think many people agree (are simply aren't
interested).  Oh well...

Use both; MathML-P annotated with the annotation tag enclosing MathML-C or
OpenMath.  Best of all possible worlds. :-)

You could use text/xml or the UNIVERSAL STYLESHEET for MathML (see:
http://www.w3.org/Math/XSL/ ) to specify IBM's-TXP as the default renderer.  I
don't know....does that help?
