Note:  this is a (real life) example of a bug report for MathML last call.
Everyone, including working group members, will be submitting comments, bug
reports, etc., to this mailing list.  Please make sure to get the subject
line syntax right.  Since the spec has been frozen for a week, you'll
probably see a number of comments from working groups members here in the
next few days.  As we've been working through implementations, generating
tests, etc., we've accumulated some bug reports.

Onto the report...

The math element explicitly lists "dir" as an attribute.  However, the math
element also accepts everything accepted by mstyle.  Because mstyle also
lists 'dir', 'dir' is effectively listed twice in the schema for the math
element.  I think the explicit listing on the math element should be
removed.
