Let's phrase it this way: I, too, see the benefit of a format tuned to 
capture what we want in RFCs (thus xml2rfc++). On the other hand, many 
people are scared by XML, thus a profile of HTML + metadata conventions 
(-> Joe's proposal).

If we can convert between these two, we don't have to decide :-)
