Please clarify the requirements. Math expressions can already be expressed in a hypothetical markup language like this. <math-expression href="http://...."/> Or: <math-expression href="data:..."/> The role of the URI scheme is not to convey the semantics or data type of the resource but rather to supply information on the network location of the resource. So I am skeptical that this URI scheme is needed. If we went down this path then we would need a URI scheme for images, zip files, documents, movies and so forth.

The 'math' URI scheme and protocol handler can be used by Web browsers and other applications to transport mathematical expressions to other applications, such as Assistive Technologies or graphing calculators. If you are interested this proposal, please join: http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed/#mathprotocol.
