Why should every spec invent it's own documentation format
while there is HTML and all the stuff? Its like reinventing the
wheel. I think it is much more flexible to say "at this point,
put whatever you want unless it conflicts with the rest", so that
people can put their doc in there in XHTML, n-walsh-doc, SVG or
You know, there are people who want to put links and images into
their docs, and whatnot.
Of course, a <document> element would be of some use if it
encapsulated foreign XML, so that it can be placed anywhere.
