Thanks for the response. I did see the referenced original proposal, but
that proposal lacks an explanation of what problem the proposal is trying to
solve. Also, the Jägermeister release simplified the referenced proposal,
again with minimal explanation of why "mathphrase" is needed. See technical
committee meeting minutes:
I'm sure the committee had a good reason to introduce this tag. I'd like to
understand it and understand how the tag interacts with other standards that
include math, how it affects accessibility, and how it affects other issues
that MathML was designed to solve.

The original proposal for mathphrase is here:
