Would this be something that could be handled as a special client side handler for links to documents containing the fragments, like how Lagrange handles inline image expansion on link select?  I do see the appeal, but I don't want to introduce the weight of Roff or MathML or TeX into the Gemtext format spec.

Could it simply be serving a TeX file as application/x-latex (or another mime type) and let the client/user open it with any suitable app?
