I had a very similar case to yours a few days ago when preparing a
born-digital document. I'm quite relieved that I came up with the same
solution Sebastian and Lou suggested, as I would not have seen from the
text of the guidelines that a formula should be placed into figure.
But, as I have a tendency to see first what the schema suggests and then
read up on the details in the Guidelines, I got there myself. In the
text, nevertheless, I do not find much about placing formulae in
figures. I think that would be a good addition, because "Groups elements
representing or containing graphic information such as an illustration
or figure." as a description of <figure> is not too inviting to use it
to contain <formula>.
Depending on Matthias' use case it could be a good idea to explicitly
set @placement to "inline", as figures tend to float. With formulae it
is sometimes important to pin them down at a specific location of the
text. Then, using e.g. the latex stylesheet yields (usually) the desired
