I think Davide could say what was not clear, but IIUC this is indeed the 
place where he says is inconsistent with the mtable automatically 
setting displaystyle to false.

Now that you point out that the schema and attribute table says that the 
default value is false, I think however that there is no confusion possible.

(Another possible issue is that other mstyle attributes do not follow 
the standard CSS inheritance model, so if you wrongly apply this to 
mtable & displaystyle one can interpret that displaystyle on a parent 
override the default displaystyle value on mtable. Personally, I'm in 
favor of removing all these mstyle attributes as was done in Gecko, so 
that everybody understands how mstyle inheritance works)
