Why has application/mathml+xml not been registered?

Six years ago RFC 3023 suggested an application/mathml+xml media type,
but warned: "no content type has yet   been registered for MathML and so
this media type should not be used until such registration has been
completed."

Three years ago we were assured that plans were afoot to register
application/mathml+xml:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-math/2003Jul/0085.html

Such a media type would be useful when serving HTML, since MathML
content could be embedded with an OBJECT element, without requiring an
entire application/xhtml+xml document.

So what happened? Why has the media type for this markup language still
not been registered?
