actually, i'd say that TeXxies are marginal in the XML world. most of
the big names either abandoned TeX some time back, or never knew it,
so far as I can see.

"rule"? you make it sound like the silly US constitution, as if to say
"right"!

you can carry on writing this, and have converters to turn it to
MathML, no problem (I say this, having worked on a LaTeX to MathML
conversion system with Eitan Gurari, and I assure you that it
works). BUT BUT BUT you will find it hard indeed to generate
*semantic* MathML from your TeX markup. Someone might want to consider
writing a LATeX package which implements a markup for semantic math
which will translate to MathML easily
