If we'd had them for 20 years then almost certainly we wouldn't have to
have om:OMA or m:mrow, and could have had om:A and m:row but 10 years
ago  was just a few months too late for both OM and MathML to use this....

I refer to Michael's accurate prediction of my gut reaction to any
suggestion of changing names at this stage:-)
