I actually didn't want to go so far and making the elements of the
MathML namespace available within the <formula> element or the elements
of the CALS namespace within the <table> element and then again making
TEI-elements available within these schemas.
I thought more of something like this (example created with the TEI P5
<mtext>Caption of the formula</mtext>
<p>Caption of the formula</p>
Since there are two ways of encoding title and/or captions of the
formula (using the MathML element mtext or the TEI element p) I wondered
which way is best to go or if the two are equally recommended.

Is it possible to access some these real work examples in which you use
CALS or MathML within a TEI-document?
