  Will this be in the next update to the W3C validator?

I really like this change and it greatly simplifies adding 
non MathML elements to MathML equations.  The old way of using 
the "semantics' tag with annotations was technically invalid.

I know it is not 'official' yet, but can I assume that using
the 'mtext' tag to insert non-MathML elements is/will become kosher?
