Sure, but it might be interesting to do it in an interchangeable way.

I really don't understand what you want to show here.

I won't take the risk of saying if A and B are the same document without 
a defininition of when documents are "the same".

And if I have my local process to produce document B and if document B 
is the interchange format which we've agreed to use, the way I am 
producing it is my own business.

See you in Seattle.
