so long as you're using an XML flavoured docbook, then adding the MathML
DTD ought to be a simple matter of deciding which elements you want to 
allow to contain the MathML <math> element and then adding math to the
appropriate parameter entity, then including the docbook and MathML
DTD's via SYSTEM entities.

Of course that only means that a docbook+mathml document validates,
getting a working production system that does the right thing with the
various elements might be harder, but as I say the dsssl sheets I did
when I first started looking at MathML may be of use. I've not really
kept them up to date as I've been using XSL rather more than Dsssl of
