If the parser is changing here could we also change it so that HTML 
elements don't auto close math
for which there was also only ever fragile justification.  It would make 
far more sense if the html elements
that currently close math just acted as if they were wrapped in mtext 
(and so rendered normally, within the math)


<math><mfrac><mn>1</mn><p>a</p></mfrac>


<math><mfrac><mn>1</mn><mtext><p>a</p></mtext></mfrac>
