It's clear that this is "missing" in some sense, but we're taking a 
fairly hard line in not adding any new names.

If we add a name and someone uses it then any fragments of mathml using 
that that get moved to a document using an older dtd are not well formed 
and the xml parser would reject the entire document.

This is why for example thel doube struck letters only have entities for 
upper case not lower case, even though there are now defined unicode 
code points for upper and lower case
