Mixing arbitrary markup with MathML was introducing a case where non-MathML nodes were being interpreted as MathML. This could pose a security risk.

Based on the language in http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML/chapter6.html#world-int-combine-other, it seemed like allowing arbitrary markup inside MathML documents was not intended to work. Indeed, the MathML validator at W3C (http://validator.w3.org) rejects example with non-MathML markup inside the MathML document.

For these reasons, I turned off the ability to host non-MathML inside a document as part of the security fix https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121728
