I read through your synopsis, and I think you have a good grasp of the

In case it is useful to you, I should add that I think in current
practice, mixed markup is relatively rare.  Most software and most
projects I know of using MathML tend to use either presentation or
content markup, but not to go in so much for mixing.  Probably the
most common approach in situations where content MathML is needed is
to use XSL to transform it to presentation MathML for display.
