Bruce, see http://www.w3.org/TR/ruby-use-cases/.  Fantasai also wrote 
something in a blog post that I tried to represent in the aforementioned 
doc.

Note that it is not an option to exit CR without any ruby markup 
(covering the features already in the HTML spec). This parallel proposal 
will need to be submitted early enough for implementers to approve and 
implement if it is to replace what's currently specced.
