Right, Jonathan.  Every use case (except maybe update) should be
considered critical and spared from possible trauma of any possible
philosophical or aesthetic objection. The committee obviously has the
best priorities for which cases matter. Notions of what markup is
actually good at should have absolutely nothing to do with decisions
about how to use markup.

This is how we got XML Schema too, isn't it?  Oh well.
