Whether or not it converts one to the other, any mathml processor should
treat these two forms the same way.
mfenced is defined to be a syntactic shorthand for a particular
combination of mrow and mo. One possible way of ensuring that the two
forms are processed in the same way is to do a pre-pass that expands out
mfenced, but that isn't required (or even a testable condition, since
it's an implementation detail). Why do you see a problem with this, it's
been specified this way since the earliest drafts of mathml 1?
