MathML has similar issues of course (but simpler probably as it doesn't 
have the separate font and layout issues that svg has). In its html(5) 
incarnation, as well as annotation-xml (which is the traditional mathml 
element for foreign stuff (cf svg's foreignContent) we directly allow
(most) inline html to be directly contained in <mtext> (mathml's inline 
text element).  MathML has also always avoided html element names in the 
hope of eventual unification:-)

A general aim of making the markup for html/svg/mathml as natural as 
possible with mixing allowed wherever it makes sense would be a good thing.
