Juan,

MathML 1.0/2.0 are language 'specifications', not primers or user manuals.

The rationale should become clear once the purpose of <apply>, <msup>, 
and the difference between prefix (used by MathML) and postfix 
notations is understood. (You may not like the use of base as mixed 
content in your example but that is a different matter.)
