When MuseScore exports a .musicxml file, there are a couple of issues with some of the tags:

1) No matter the title of the piece nor the composer's name in MuseScore, the tags below are always set to 'Title' and 'Composer'.

< work-title >Title< /work-title >
< creator type="composer" >Composer< /creator >

MuseScore exports the title of your piece and composer's name to a < credit-words > tag only.

2) Position of articulations is not exported (that is, MuseScore does not use the argument placement="below" or placement="above").

3) marcato-staccato type of articulations is exported just as a staccato (should be exported probably as two, strong-accent + staccato)

4) marcato-tenuto type of articulation is not exported at all (should be exported probably as two, strong-accent + tenuto)


Comments

Commented in the PR thread, thus the composite articulations should be exported as pairs of individual articulations, since Musicxml has no such composite things.

Just found a score with multiple articulations on one note, typed in Musescore 2. When converted into Musescore 3, all of them became composite articulations, and can't be exported. So this issue has to be solved, unless we convert Musescore 2 in Musescore 2, but that xml file will have other missing things.

Individual issue for composite articulations should be created to let more developers know, and hopefully there will be one who can ultimately solve the problem.
