Re: What are your plans for MathML macros?

These are the plans that I was talking about:
So with that little clarification I ask again:
Do you plan to have the macros for MathML only be XML-type tags, or do
you plan to allow the user to be able to do something perhaps like let
"[" and "]" stand for the <apply> and </apply> tags or let "+" stand
for <plus/>, etc. I know this would break the XML rules, but I think
it might be a good idea to only require the low-level MathML tags to
be XML-compliant, and let the macro implementation allow for notations
similar to TeX or EzMath.
