My proposal was fractions, and *only* fractions. I never included  
formulas in it. I think that any kind of formula element would be a  
little silly if we are to only offer fractions to authors. I'm not  
really opposed to <formula> per se, I think however that <dformula>  
and <dformgrp> are superflous.

So, using your list, my proposal was really 2 and 4, and nothing else.
