Looks like it came through.

The real audience for this would be people creating / editing 
mathematical / technical / scientific papers, not the character encoders 
(although there's some small overlap).

I think it is valuable to explore the solution space, but have you heard 
from people actively using mathematical notation (in whatever form it is 
currently supported) to find out what they are looking for?

What would you have to offer to make your new mousetrap one that people 
would be willing to leave investment in established technologies behind?

I'm sure you've thought of all of that already.
