Hmmm. This can be interpreted two ways, I think. Do you mean a 1:1
syntactical mapping, so that they have the same syntactical structure,
or that both should be able to fully represent TMDM?

This is needed to fully support TMDM, now that we have support for
embedded markup, and so I agree that this is another thing that should
go into CTM.
