I think the readers of xml-dev shouldn't jump to any conclusions based on Juan R.'s characterization of the discussion on the WHAT WG list.

1) I would begin by citing your views on HTML5. For instance your heated
reply to editor's comment

Heated? Wow. Your heat detector is miscalibrated.

BTW, I agreed with Hixie that making MathML serializable as HTML5 probably makes sense.

2) You forget to say here that HTML5 spec (i.e. the draft) was
explicitely recommending the usage of MathML and that was eliminated in
a new version of the draft after discussion maintained at the list,

As you quoted Hixie yourself, the recommendation wasn't particularly intentional. You are reading way too much into the use of MathML being recommended in the first place and you are also reading way too much into the subsequent removal of that piece of text.

Also Robert O'Callahan (Mozilla Layout team) wrote:

Basically you are blowing any nod towards non-MathML out of proportion.

I wonder why I am not seeing stretchy parentheses there...

However, i do not see you actively participating on the experiment ;-)

I've been busy fixing bug 18333, which was one of the issues you held against MathML. :-)
