Funny.  That "dirty work" was the subject of a lot of talks at Balisage, 
and the subject of a whole symposium the day before:


I pointed out a lot of layers of failure and opportunity in my talk, but 
there were many other more concrete conversations about user 
interactions with marked-up data, from editors to XForms and more.

You may be trying hard to be disagreeable, but you're actually repeating 
the point Roger made...

Maybe come to the show sometime?  I know you can deliver potshots in person.
