There is a real world need for html post processing that is not dependent on HTL. The rewriter
is already not a core component and something that is community supported so I don't think
enhancing it should be much of an issue. For what it's worth though I don't like the overhead
of the existing pipeline as it is anyway. HTML doesn't have anything to do with XML anymore.

Missing a point here I think. If you are focusing on link rewriting, that is something that
can only occur on the server side.  Helps with multi-tenancy and cross linking.
