Tough call.  I think that W3C's choices so far have been consistent
(HTML, XML, CSS, MathML, SMIL, etc) but I'm not sure anyone has written
down the underlying principle.  For example, I can't see W3C being
an appropriate venue to discuss spreadsheet formats, but I can't really
crystallize why that's the case. -Tim
