Actually, the original post makes it quite clear that display:block is what
is desired:

 In writing content that
 has images, equations, or other figures embedded inside a paragraph
 <em>(where  said figure takes up the entire column width),</em>

<em>phasis mine.

That implies there is no text on the same line as the <math> element, either
before or after it, thus there is effectively a break desired before _and_
after, thus display:block.

Oh, and if you preferred just a break before, you could do that as well:

 math:before { display:block }
