Yes, it's a pain that MKM isn't recognised as being a branch of mathematics.
Every time I write a paper, or apply for a grant, or whatever
then I face the same question of how to classify it.

Possible options in MSC 2010 to consider are:

  (see http://msc2010.org/MSC-2010-server.html )

  00 General
  00Axx General and miscellaneous specific topics
   00A20 Dictionaries and other general reference works

  90-XX Operations research, mathematical programming
   90-00 General reference works (handbooks, dictionaries, bibliographies, etc.)
   90-01 Instructional exposition (textbooks, tutorial papers, etc.)
   90-02 Research exposition (monographs, survey articles)
   90-04 Explicit machine computation and programs (not the theory of computation or programming)
   90-06 Proceedings, conferences, collections, etc.
   90-08 Computational methods

  90Bxx Operations research and management science 
   90B99 None of the above, but in this section

  90Cxx Mathematical programming [See also 49Mxx, 65Kxx]
   90C99 None of the above, but in this section

  65Kxx Mathematical programming, optimization and variational techniques
   65K05 Mathematical programming methods [See also 90Cxx]
   65K99 None of the above, but in this section

  94-XX Information and communication, circuits
   94-00 General reference works (handbooks, dictionaries, bibliographies, etc.)
   94-04 Explicit machine computation and programs (not the theory of computation or programming)

  94Axx Communication, information
   94A05 Communication theory [See also 60G35, 90B18]
   94A15 Information theory, general [See also 62B10, 81P45]
   94A99 None of the above, but in this section

A search for MathML comes up with no matches in:

      http://www.zentralblatt-math.org/msc/data/msc2010.pdf


In a more general setting (all research fields), I've even used
things like:  (e.g. for Digital Maths Library)

   Information Technology, Information systems, Library studies


This is something that really needs to be addressed.
