What do you mean by "machine readable?"  XML?

It isn't ReST.  It just happens that this very simple and logical
progression of the border setting works for ReST.  The display stands
on its own.  This is not true of machine readable formats like XML.  I
guess the question is, why border 2? Border 1 seems to be enough.  In
fact border 0 has everything we absolutely need.  Why have any borders?
