True, I have similar concerns too. The next step, like Ricardo said, is
to write a simple rust script that uses rust-swc to compile typescript
to javascript. I am unfamiliar with both rust and typescript. So, if I
am to do it, I would need some time. If someone else volunteers to do
it, that would be great.

I think we shouldn't let the typescript build system and mathjax block
calibre. If I understand correctly, calibre depends on mathjax only
optionally. So, you should go ahead with your work on calibre regardless
of what happens with mathjax.
