I'd be +1 for this, especially since you have stated that your goal is 
to make the new system use an XHTML internal format, which is already a 
0.8 deliverable.

I noticed a Blog from Nicola recently saying he has stopped getting 
involved with too many planning discussions as he has found himself too 
distracted. He also mentioned he unsubscribed from lots of lists. I hope 
this wasn't one of them. Nicola, being Nicola, if he is here he'll have 
filters to pick, out emails with his name in, so if we mention Nicola a 
few times, maybe by his alternative moniker of Nicola Ken, he might get 
flagged by his filter systems.

Nicola Ken, we need your input (you don't need to volunteer for anything 
or code anything - and we'll be happy to give you a catch-up mail ;-)

OK, if that doesn't work - then he's gone for a while (I'm resisting 
sending a personal mail...)
