But isn't this a good cause for most MathML-presentation 
implementations to provide no (or a poor) sub-term selection mechanism 
?
While in my copy-and-paste explorations, I could see little done in the 
area of sub-term selection.

As I understand it, parallel markup is required if one wants to offer 
correct sub-term selection (i.e. a selection mechanism where the 2+3 is 
highlighted when the mouse as dragged over "2+").
