I continue to fail to see why the needs of the IETF are so unique,
compared to other standards orgs, that we need all this complexity and
cost vs. commercial tools to generate PDF.

I've continued to hear about cases where rare individuals want automated
access to structured information inside these docs, but these have
failed (IMO) to justify a real need (vs academic exercise), especially
compared to the impact on the authoring community.
