Yeah, we should update the pages to reflect reality. Maybe Karl can do that.
Mozilla staff are currently maintaining our MathML support (i.e., keeping it working as other things change around it) and willing to review and land contributions to improve it, but we aren't going to invest in any major improvements until MathML becomes a lot more popular on the Web. We already support a very large subset of MathML and there's just no point in extending that until people start using what we've already implemented.
Actually there is one major improvement for MathML coming as a side effect when we transition to the new HTML5-spec-based parser; you will be able to write MathML in non-XML HTML documents. That will make MathML far more usable on the Web.
