Give a proposal, or some examples, and people can judge it better :).

For the time being, I’m thinking that MathML and XQuery-in-XML-syntax 
are two broadly different applications with very different goals, so I'm 
not at all sure that those can be brought together. Good idea? I can’t 
really tell, but so far I lean towards no.

There may be a little overlap where it would be beneficial to follow 
MathML syntax, but I doubt it will be much, and it would not be too 
terrible if such a small overlap was left for what it is. Rather, it 
would be a bad idea to do things unintuitively or differently than the 
ideal way just to follow MathML syntax.

Of course, I’m not very familiar with MathML beyond its 
presentation-notation either.
