    Also, it looks like large operators such that "n-ary summation" or 
"integral" that were stretchy in MathML 2 and in the last MathML 3 
working draft are no longer stretchy in the internal editor's draft. Is 
it intentional (some people pointed out this difference with TeX [1]) or 
another error? Anyway, it seems inconsistent with what is written in 
chapter three [2] :
"Most common opening and closing fences are defined in the operator 
dictionary to stretch by default; and they stretch vertically. Also, 
operators such as &sum;, &int;, /, and vertical arrows stretch 
vertically by default."
