fmt strips quotes when using parameter

Thanks for your explanation, I think it should be a FAQ and it's too bad that 
the spec did go this way.
It's a nightmare for localizers and for developers because the only suggestion 
in the MessageFormat javadoc is to use comments in resource bundle source 
files to indicate which strings will be processed by MessageFormat. 
What about evolutions? It's obvious that some parameters will be added during 
the life of an application and we should rely only on comments to avoid 
problems?

Anyway, which better alternative do I have:
- write my own tag to fix this "correct" behavior
- always use <param> even if empty

Any suggestion is welcome.
