In what way will the use of MathML impact on the requirements of the
rest of the page?

Sorry, I don't understand this point at all. There may be some
discussion about how far the syntax of "mathml-in-html" may differ from
that of "mathml-in-xml" but surely it's a basic premise of the html5
design that whatever syntax is finally agreed on, it will have a
specified mapping to a DOM, and won't require ad hoc browser fixes?
