Thanks, Elliotte.

(1) I am in no position to make anything like an informed judgment before I see
the details of your proposal, which I eagerly await.

(2) The only preliminary judgment I have any evidence for is that you seem to
choose ("the structures it exposes are those defined in XML itself:") exactly
the right premises.

(3) My opinion has no normative nor prescriptive force, often not even for the
manner in which I use markup in my own work.

Last chance: anyone who would like to attend this presentation in person
tomorrow evening should contact me OFFLIST at mailto:wperry@xml-sig.org
immediately (i.e., within the next two hours) to reserve a place.
