Well I have seen the alternative... and it isn't nice!

The users happily paste in 300KB of obscure html from word.

Html that is about 15 KB when run through Tidy that is!

Besides, most of the stx documents I see my users paste in in real life 
is a few KB worth of text. Max... And the advantage is that REST has a 
syntax that is much closer to what ordinary users expect.

In userland indentation is actually a hard problem.
