OK, that's something that's somewhat actionable and so something I
might be able to actually get done.

We already have a small amount of flexibility in the design of WDs
we publish. If somebody with half a lick of design sense (i.e.,
not me) can come up with a good way to represent that emphasis you
describe above without totally fubarring up the current titlepage
design, we might be able to actually get it done. Something other
than ASCII art, I mean. Or marquee or blink (as fond as I am
personally of those).
