Making docs difficult to edit by using xml is not helping Forrest. We 
must support content from reasonably widespread editors.

 From your post, and from Ross's comments, I gather that this could be a 
possible alternative route:

  Deprecate xdocs as a source format suggesting to use XHTML1.x instead.

We should also suggest a list of correct XHTML1.x editors.


PS: Emacs, vi, jedit, notepad, etc are not the editors I'm talking about
