Hi Adam,

I didn't have time to study it in full detail, but…

… I agree with Paul.

Depending on your plans for this summer you may want to submit part of 
this to the OpenMath workshop 
(http://www.informatik.uni-bremen.de/cicm2012/cicm.php?event=openmath&menu=general) 
– I would welcome such a submission; for the "representation-language" 
aspects of your work OpenMath would be a good target.

As far as user interaction is concerned, Paul's MathUI seems a more 
suitable target; see http://www.cermat.org/events/MathUI/12/.

A good workshop paper should answer questions such as

1. What is the purpose of your work, or a use case for it?  (Well
2. How does it relate to previous approaches (such as those mentioned by 
Paul)
3. Is an implementation available?  Or, if not, are you planning to 
create one?

Cheers,

Christoph
