Yes, as you point out it is late for XBIS to be considered a  
candidate for the baseline format. However, our plan is to pick a  
baseline approach to structural encoding, and on that graft (where  
possible, without creating a monster) features from others, when  
sensible. As you can expect, most participants in the WG are aware of  
XBIS, and I believe the chances are very high that we'll be looking  
at it closely to steal^Wfind inspiration.

Thanks a lot!
