You could probably get something to work with an munderover using an mo 
with a horizontal stretch line character as the base, which gives you a 
hook to hang the semantics to, You'd then have to either not worry so 
much about the visual spacing or experiment with spacing and phantoms to 
make it look more fraction-like.

similarly for mroot, you could, I think, put an mroot around an mphantom 
with (unlinked) mphantomed hidden version of your content
(so the over-bar gets the right size) and then back in a hyperlinked 
version of the operand with some negative spacing.


But having suggested that in public, I feel compelled to refer you to
