[edited necessary to unnecessary as I believe you meant]

What kind of thigs are missing?  Why are they unnecessary?

I want to use Forrest to display 'Maths'.  I personally don't care
whether it uses MathML or Tex, or somehow uses a kind of stylesheet to
transform one into the other - I just want to be able to put equations
in my Forrest docs to be able to type up my lecture notes and have them
available on the web.

The reason I don't care whether it's MathML or TeX is that I haven't
learnt how to write either yet - I'm going to have to learn one of them
though!  I'm willing to learn whichever Forrest will support.

Is this in your own setup or already possible in Forrest?
