Am I sure? Uh, no comment. But I think mine is sufficient.

Your math mode:

| <xsl:template match="m:math">
|  <m:math>
|   <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
|   <xsl:apply-templates mode="math"/>
|  </m:math>
| </xsl:template>
| <xsl:template match="m:*|@*|comment()|processing-instruction()|text()" mode="math">
|  <xsl:copy>
|    <xsl:apply-templates mode="math" select="*|@*|processing-instruction()|text()"/>
|  </xsl:copy>
| </xsl:template>

1. Copies m:* elements, but my template will do that.
2. Copies @*, but my template will do that for m:* elements. Does MathML
   define any global attributes?
3. Copies comment()s, but that's probably irrelevant since SAX parsers
   don't have any comment events so XSLT probably never sees them (<sigh/>).
4. Copies PIs. Well, here we're making different choices. You're assuming
   any PI in a mathml section should be copied literally, I'm assuming the
   stylesheet ought to get a chance to look at it. It's a tough call.
5. Copies text. But my default text template will do that too.
