Sure, similar CSS rules are given in

http://www.w3.org/TR/mathml-for-css/#mstack

but the mathml css profile has to have so many restrictions on the input 
for it to work it really doesn't scale well.
Using newer css notably flexbox you could probably do a bit more in 
browsers that support it but still the preferred
result is that browsers implement mathml natively, we are not there yet 
for all browsers as you know,
but these things take time...
