i have no idea about clipboards or Math, but i'm armed with git grep :)

ehhh.... i'd not hold my breath on that one :)

struct DataFlavorEx : public ::com::sun::star::datatransfer::DataFlavor

this has a "SotClipboardFormatId mnSotId" and a "string MimeType" - how
does the system specifc clipboard data get translated to that...

include/sot/formats.hxx: enum class SotClipboardFormatId

there is no MathML in there, but various STARMATH_* ones.

    // the point at which we start allocating "runtime" format IDs

so what you probably have as ID is "user-defined", which means we can't
do anything with it really.

it looks like there needs to be some mapping from the OS-specific
clipboard to these office-internal IDs - if there's no ID for MathML it
can't be mapped.

there is a big array in sot/source/base/exchange.cxx, you probably need
to add an entry for MathML there.

the array is ordered and indexed by the SotClipboardFormatId.

/* 48 SotClipboardFormatId::STARMATH_50*/            {
5.0\"", "StarMath 5.0", &cppu::UnoType<Sequence<sal_Int8>>::get() },

that's the mime-type and human-readable name.

i was wondering how this would work on Windows, given that the Win32
clipboard presumably does not use mime-types; apparently the
";windows_formatname=\"...\"" appendix to the mime-type here covers that.

how do you prepare the SfxMedium?  i'm not sure if it requires an actual
file, or if it can read from an input stream (XInputStream); it probably
can't read from a Sequence<sal_Int8> buffer directly...

there is a SfxMedium::setStreamToLoadFrom() which looks promising.

you can create an input stream from the buffer via SvMemoryStream and
then wrap that in utl::OInputStreamWrapper.
