Microsoft seems to be particularly trying to push people to UnicodeMath [1][2] as a standard math exchange format. It sounds like from the blog post that (La)TeX math support is almost a "free" bonus given UnicodeMath is somewhat based on TeX prefix patterns (but as Unicode characters and joiners as much as possible) and the UnicodeMath standard supports a somewhat trivial conversion between the two.
