Hi,

In a project I was a part of a few years ago, we had need for 
communication of sparse matrices. We went for the pure OpenMath approach, 
i.e. both the producer (of the sparse matrices) and the consumer were 
speaking OpenMath, both using the same Content dictionary (we only needed 
one!):
http://www.cs.bath.ac.uk/~wn/OpenMath/GENSS/html/cd/linalg6.html
In our case there was no need to translate to or from MathML (for 
presentation), though I'm sure xslt stylesheets for that could be written. 
Of course the csymbol or definition URL approach could be used refering to 
the above CD if considered necessary,

cheers,

Bill
