please can you post a command line you use for matml output?

I did not use any automation. It would be difficult to make it. Although I think about automation for chinese fonts.
My approach is to use proofsheets for a  (math) font, so I can quickly identify problems.
proofsheet  is  an html table where I put
char number;  picture of a char; and unicode value (or whaterver comes from a htf);

How do to produce a missing htf font? For example, jkpex.htf.
My method is as follow:
- /guess the best possible match for another font/ (that has htf counterpart)
E.g. for jkpex font I thought that it would be using same encoding as cmex10.
I made jkpex.htf  file with an alias for 'cmex' and run proofsheets so  I can validate my guess.
Another option I use to compare fonts (and encodings) is generate tables with nfssfont (pdflatex nfssfont) and compare  PDFs.
After comparison it was clear that jkpex font is an extended version of cmex10.
So, for literate code I took cmex font from tex4ht-font-noncjk.tex as a basis and added some extra characters.
Probably it would be better to make a patch for a tex4ht-font-noncjk.tex file.
