Oh, sure. There is an implicit barrier in front of all this of "99% of
TEI users don't need to
even know about any of this stuff, it will just work from oXygen or
whatever as expected".

Roma on a command-line needs no setup, I promise. by default it
gets P5 from the web. But yes, I do know that most people don't
live on a command line, <foreign>mirabile dictu</foreign> :-}
My aim is that people like you and Syd should have no problems
getting this to work if you ever want/need to, and it is worrying if
I _have_ raised barriers at this stage,
