Although what you say is true strictly speaking, it is not true in
practice. www-math is the W3C's main (only?) mailing list for MathML.
There is another mailing list, WebMath (see the link at w3.org/Math/),
which is *explicitly* about math on the web in general.

Are you reviewing flaws of MathML in order to suggest improvements to it,
or in order to argue for an alternative approach? If the former, I missed
it and you might have to restate your suggestions. If the latter, you
might consider posting to WebMath instead of here. Your subject line does
suggest the latter, doesn't it?

P.S. With apologies for sudden delurking without prior introduction. My
interest in MathML is structural, because it's embedded in CellML. So I'm
pretty much agnostic about rendering issues.
