If the parser is changing here could we also change it so that HTML elements

Yes, no reason to exclude math here. It should be consistent.
It would make far
more sense if the html elements
that currently close math just acted as if they were wrapped in mtext (and
so rendered normally, within the math)
Or, slightly better, also define a "math layout mode", which currently
only math elements can activate via hidden, unseeable magic
(currently). Then define how other layout modes act when inserted
into the math layout model, like we're doing with the svg layout
Speaking for myself here (but I wouldn't expect the Math WG to disagree)
we'd be happy to
work on whatever is needed here to make html/math/svg a coherent
(that hopefully you might even implement:-) with as far as possible
because of the different origins of the languages blurred to current users.
Who do you mean by "we" in the above (css wg, svg wg, whatwg here) not
that it matters really but if
I need to go and ask the Math WG to coordinate with someone I want to be
able to say who that is:-)
