Thank you for saying so, Sebastian. I couldn't agree more. In fact,
I've been known to go even further: don't base markup decisions on
what any or all current processing tools can or cannot do, only on
what they could or should do. This on the theory that our tools will
get better over time.
On the other hand, I had been saying this for a decade before we had
any decent tools, so you may wnt to take it with a grain of salt.
