Some people has implemented versions of p-MathML with propietary
extensions focusing on limitations of 2.0 spec thanks to extensibility of
XML framework using propietary namespaces. Extensions i see are not
backward incompatible with MathML 2.0 but a superset. This is another real
life example where a browser closed HTML implementation is unlikely since
not addresses real needs.
