Note that this is a hot topic happening right now in the W3C Math  
working group.
MathML3 should provide enough specification for Maple and Mathematica  
to put and get MathML content reliably.
We have a Maple guy on board and it seems to follow. Whether it'll  
flow into Maple 13, 14 ??...
Mathematica, it seems, followed an earlier draft of MathML3 and puts  
presentation mathml in the clipboard thus far.

So... hopes are not lost.
