DITA has semantics for the more general "multistep processes" via the
"task" topic. If you have a nice, self-contained derivation, this would
be an appropriate vehicle to express it. (e.g., the "derivation" topic
could be a specialization of "task"). It does not have
out-of-the-box-support for Openmath, but it is designed to be extended.
Adding the <OMA> element as a child of
<taskbody><steps><step><cmd>...</></></></> should do the trick. (extend
their <foreign/> element.) You will, of course, have to adapt the
processing s/w to handle the new tags.
