Hope IE6 can resolve the bug sooner rather than later so that we
don't have to continuously work around their bugs.

m0.9.9 is fine. It will only affect m0.9.9+ (and onwards).
[Note: there are PUA values in the Mozilla's mathml.dtd to handle 
surrogate and plane-1 characters via entities given that the 
MathML spec is ahead of the means at our disposal ATM, especially
w.r.t. cross-platform support.]

What about adding the DOCTYPE for Mozilla instead?
More and more things are being made catalog driven (as per
the catalog spec) to avoid doing unnecessary things upfront,
especially those things that are deemed tangential for the
majority of users.
