Absolutely. Before the Philipines and India got so good at marking up data, we
ran a reasonably sized team of people who cleaned up the anomalies left over
from programmatic conversion. We always had plenty of structured editors
inhouse, but the vast majority of people found themselves using their favourite
ASCII editor anyway. Even for CALS tables, there were a number of people who
felt that this was a more productive approach.
