Dear Juan,

Another complaint was:
3) unified solution to visual and aural rendering of special tokens as
differentials, between others.

The obvious fact is that by providing explicit markup for a
differential d, because it is a very common symbol these days, MathML
encourages coherent rendering of calculus text in visual and aural  
streams.
The specification does not, and could not reasonably, specify the actual
rendering of something like 'dee by dee eks' when the desired  
vocalization
is dependent on the target natural language.
