Hello all,

Section 4.3.2.9 of the MathML reccomendation states that the "type" 
attribute of a <ci> can be "the name of any content element".  In my 
opinion, the fact that arbitrary type is allowed may hinder the 
particular element to be transformed into other document forms, such 
as OpenMath, while preseving the complete semantics of the particular 
<ci>.  In the "mathmltyles" OpenMath CD, there are only a 
finite number of types available to add type information to a 
mathematical object.  What do other people think?
