Issue: Need feedback from Accessibility WG on whether it is acceptable

And even RELAX,
Issue: What is the normative reference for RELAX? Shouldn't it
be RELAX NG anyway?
Issue: Which schema languages are adequate to constrain a limerick
to legal form?
5. Line five
[This section will describe the surprising results of of using XML
