Dot, another problem that I'd have with the respStmt solution (besides 
it supposedly referring to a person rather than a program) is that the 
definion mentions 'responsible for the intellectual content', which is 
not really what the markup tool is responsible for.

As I said earlier, I feel this is important enough for an element of its 
own. Why couldn't we have a <toolStmt>, on a par with <respStmt>? I'm 
sure there'll be more tools that generate TEI texts. But if it should be 
vanilla TEI, for the moment I'd prefer <creation>.
