Oops, I mean unnecessary, of course.

There are nearly thousands of commands. In the real world, you only use
a subset of them.

If you write more than just one equation, you will make a difference,
for sure ;) If you have a document with dozens of equations, MathML
makes it unmaintainable.

XML is a very bad format for editors knowing from experience(We
have thousands of documents with equations in our project). But this is
a different chapter...

Not now, but can easily done by adding some additional transformers to
the cwiki.
cwiki > xdoc + mathml > html + gif images (or mathml)
But first things first. You should first start to get MathML running.
I can help if there problems occur...
