The spec says
"MathML characters can also be represented via entity
references, although this practice is deprecated in MathML
and yet it's full of examples that use them. Readers are going
to pay attention to the examples at *least* as much as they
will pay attention to that very quiet and subtle admonition.
If you really mean to deprecate π and such, don't use
it in so many examples.
