Thanks, but I didn't want to ignore them. That's why I read them and 
replied. I did stick to the content; namely, I was criticizing the 
creation of new parsing rules out of the blue.

First, I don't really care how someone phrases his ideas, and I wonder 
why you think I did. Second, Dmitry should keep his visions by all 
means. Though, if he tries to be consistent "with the markup language 
and DOM patterns as we know them today", it's more likely that his ideas 
will be adopted.

I do think some of Dmitry's ideas violate our design principles, if that 
was your question.
