latexml omits parentheses from tag #533

LaTeX interprets the contents of \tag{}, in math mode if requested, and encloses it in parentheses. LaTeXML, on the other hand, interprets the contents in text mode, and omits the parentheses. Not quite a bug, but a surprising difference, and an ugly one, as a tag like \tag{$2'$} results not in (2'), but in $2^{\prime}$.
Here's a MWE:


Here's a numbered equation:
y = mx + b

Here's a numbered equation with a hand-rolled tag:
z = mx + b\tag{$1'$}

No errors or warnings are thrown by latexml or latexmlpost, but I can post the output if so desired.
The LaTeXML \tag{} behavior is not difficult to work around, but it would be handy to be able to use math mode in tags, all the same.
