Note that the extension mechanisms work fine here as well. You can also write: <declare type="vector"><ci>u</ci></declare> <apply> <csymbol definitionURL="directionalDerivative">D</csymbol> <bvar><ci>u</ci></bvar> <ci>f</ci> </apply> where the definitionURL refers to an appropriate definition of D.
