While I think the MathML-for-CSS specification is useful, and I am
moderately optimistic about the long-term prospects for using CSS to
provide cross-platform rendering of math, I think that the default
CSS sheet found as a non-normative appendix (ยง12) in the specification
is in need of revision.

For example, I find that something as simple as (x+y)^2 seems not to
be handled well in browsers known for strong support of CSS.  See the
screenshots in the HTML document
