I think this is something forgotten in many of the arguments and 
development cycles of recent technologies. The implementers are far fewer 
than the users. Ease of implementation, IMO, should take a back seat to 
ease of use. That something may take a software developer a few extra hours 
is no reason to make it harder for the author every document produced using 
that technology.
