Yes I think that is the meaning, and I don't intend to 'expand' along
these lines (by myself -- sounds like a nice sibling project). I see
it as fairly separate question, what the inputs means and how they are
constructed. It's not like supplying a fork but no spoon. So that's
why I didn't quite get why that's somehow a disadvantage. Kind of like
criticizing Tomcat for not including Wordpress or something.

reading?) or consideration of document similarity.

this first -- it's not in their interest. :)
