Actually, it is not the MathML that has been modified, but only the DTD 
file. We have created this modified DTD file five years ago to be able 
to validate namespaced MathML with a DTD.

The following information regarding the modifications is directly from 
the DTD file:

<!-- 1) added "math:" namespace prefix                  -->
<!-- 2) removed entity include files                    -->
(there are two other modification listed, but they do only effect the 
comment section of the DTD file)
<!-- Modifications are intended to ease validation      -->
<!-- of MathML files written by StarMath 6.0            -->

Actually, mentioning "StarMath 6.0" is not up to date any longer, and 
maybe even confusing. It probably would have been more accurate to say 
something like "Modifications are intended to ease validation of 
namespaced MathML files."

I hope this helps.
