Pop doesn't have to be bad music.  It only has to be 
popular.  Code doesn't have to be obscure; it only 
has to do a job someone needs done.

Markup lives in the overlap between the requirement 
for a reliable vehicle and the occasional need for a 
user to look under the hood.   On the other hand, it 
is rare for a driver to fix a crankshaft.  In a world 
where implementors rule, markup becomes a racecar 
and only a highly trained pit crew can change a tire.

But fortunately, the existence of users needn't reduce its poetic qualities.
