    It is a good habit.

    It works in PassiveTeX because MathML rendering is
    natively supported by underlying formatting engine of PassiveTeX;
    TeX is great.

    For us, it means that we must make a MathML formatter (probably
    through SVG, but it still remains largely the same). This is
    among things we are going to do.
