Remember, all I was asking for in the first place was input into how
some of us could start doing this on an experimental basis.  It isn't
up to this group to develop a standard solution; that's the job of the
W3C SGML working group.  I think that the form above will work for an
initial experiment, and unless someone sees a basic problem with it,
that's what I'm going to try.
