Dear Henri,

we shall update the spec to go in the direction sketched below.
And bring the table of recommended encoding values in chapter 5

thanks for your comments!

Applications emitting MathML should, when outputting the encoding  
attribute of the annotation or annotation-xml children of the  
semantics element, either:

1- use one of the names listed in this spec, if applicable
2- use a mime-type if one exists for the data
3- use a namespace URI if this URI is the namespace URI of the single  
root child of an annotation-xml that is being output
4- use an self-decided character string

Note that the encoding attribute value of case 4 does not impact the  
XML parsing architecture which still needs appropriate xmlns  
declarations.
