Good point. What we need is some way of nesting RSTML documents inside
each other. Now that RSTML has been operating for over a day with good
feedback from users (no-one has said they don't understand it) I think
it's time to enhance the feature-set. I propose that we allow an RSTML
document to contain other RSTML documents:

	document ::= StartTag (Stuff | document) EndTag
 	StartTag ::= '<RTSML>'
 	EndTag   ::= '</RTSML>'

One other thing; I'm organising a conference on RSTML. There won't
actually be any sessions or even an event, since the idea is that if
anyone actually wants to attend the conference then RSTML is obviously
too complicated to understand in 3 minutes (recall from 1.0 that "RSTML
'MUST' be understood in less time than it takes to boil an egg"). If
even one ticket is sold RSTML would need to be revised, and so the
conference would have to be cancelled. The conference won't be on
December 12th. Everyone OK with that date?
