I've taken an initial look at this bug:


and I'm curious as to why MathML seems to be treated differently
for selection highlights.

Is there something a rendering object should do to define the
selection highlight?

Ideally, we'd just have one highlight for the root MathML element's
rendering object (typically, 'math').
