Or was it, the OpenMath definitions were chosen to be consistent with
MathML? ;-) At least the definition in content dictionary transc1 were:
http://monet.nag.co.uk/cocoon/openmath/cd/transc1.html
For the multivalued definitions of the inverse trig functions, the content
dictionary transc3:
http://monet.nag.co.uk/cocoon/openmath/cd/transc3.html
should be referred.
