mathml, openmath irrelevant?

Looking at the report of a workshop sponsored by
NSF (may 1998) it seems that other people have
solved all our problems, and entirely without our help.

see www.dlib.org/dlib/april99/04abrams.html
and the further references from that, such
as http://deslab.mit.edu/DesignLab/dicpm/

The workshop topic was Distributed Information,
Computation, and Process Management for
Scientific and Engineering Environments.

among the 51 invited participants, Dr. George Strawn
and Dr. John Cherniavsky of NSF.
