I think specifying Manch syntax is worth considering, given that  
there is commercial deployment experience and a decent following for  
it. Possible routes for doing this would be submission, WG note, Rec  
track, along the lines of the XML syntax. That would address the  
legitimate concern about it's status, and might be an overall  
positive contribution to the community (does anyone know of an actual  
reference for it currently? I always land up futzing in the editor  
trying to get rid of the red underlines ;-).

Thoughts from others?
