Sorry to interject with a technical question.

@Dave Barton, @David Carlisle: I tried to look up the bug that eventually
led to deactivation. It seems this is not public anymore. Is that correct?
(If so, then that's not helpful for communication.)

On the constructive side, how realistic is comment
#35<https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=152430#c35>
(changing
MathML from build-time-flag to runtime-flag)?

Peter.
