Good question, Dave - I guess my thought that was smaller change would 
be *easier* to get implemented, but perhaps that is naive: ho-humness 
could doom it.  One thing I like about this incremental approach though 
is that much of the benefit can be realized *only* with a new parser.  I 
know a parser is complicated, but with some of the complexity removed, 
it would actually be much simpler to create a new one.

I don't know how easily major players could be enlisted, but I do know 
that if nobody sticks their neck out, willing to make a mistake and 
maybe look stupid, nothing will ever happen.

Coming from the publishing world, it seems to me there is an opportunity 
to support whole new models of content delivery: on e-readers and other 
mobile devices especially.  Having a more compact syntax, and a simpler 
parser and processing model should be attractive there, as David Lee and 
others have attested.
