Both part1 and part2 of my story prove that the only thing you do
NOT need to standardize in some documentation system is the markup
language (like S26); you need to standardize the semantics. Merging
two totally disjunct approaches: this will probably produce the
worst of both, and makes no-one happy. (*) Sorry.
Well, I don't think being happy with what MarkOv and others are
proposing requires being unhappy with Damian's work; I prefer to be
greedy and want both options. They do address somewhat different
goals, so I see what you mean about not merging them. On the other
hand, you can combine almost any concepts if you find a broad enough
common denominator and call that the new baseline.
I hope to make some further comments regarding your proposal when I
have a bit more time myself....
