I haven't read this in detail, but support the idea. I had to write some
catalog software before XML and found it remarkable that SGML could have so
many different syntaxes for a single language:
	- declaration
	- DTD
	- catalog
	- document instance
	- stylesheet (though this wasn't standardised anyway).

If we can reduce the syntax to one, great.
