There still is a long way to go.  I think it would be good to get a
lot of outside feedback and support.  We need better support from the
major players to figure out some of the trickier bits.  I've gotten a
lot of feedback from WebKit developers telling me that "you shouldn't
do it like that" without much about how it should be done within

MathML is a different kind of markup language than what has been done
in the past and has its own rendering issues with respect to how
WebKit works (e.g. anonymous blocks).
