Just to complete the circle, I should mention the use cases for 
html-inside-maths and html-inside graphics. As an example of the first consider 
a mathematics tutor with questions like

4/9 = ?/3

Where the ? is to be filled in by the student. This seems like a good use for a 
html input element inside maths content.

As an example of the second, consider creating something like [1] or [2] where 
you want to use the features of the graphics language to rotate or filter html 
content (arguably these particular examples could also be achieved with 
enhancements to CSS).
