Exactly! And I would guess that the annotation you mentioned 

>           <OMSTR> <mrow> <mo>sin</mo> &ApplyFunction; <mn>1</mn> </mrow>

would probably be used for renering purposes, i.e. an application wouldn't
even have to parse the MathML-XML but could simply insert the string in a
document for a rendering engine (e.g. Mozilla).

I fully support Manfred's idea of using the <OMSTR> element for that
