The document really doesn't give any overview or justification for what
it's trying to do. It just lists a way of listing (using RDF for some
unexplained reason) some transformations that you may want to do on some

It seems to assume that this:

That (a) there is generally some set of transformations that one wants
to apply to documents using a particular namespace and that (b) it is
useful to list these transformations at the namespace URI and that (c)
the documents are likely to be processed in a context such that the
namespace URI is reachable to be dereferenced. I think that in most
cases all three of those things are false, so I'm sorry I'm at a loss to
see how I could use this for MathML as a specific example that I know
something about.

Of the hundreds of transformations that one could imagine applying to a
MathML expression. Which would make sense to list at the namespace URI?
