  Agreed it's sad to not be able to include text chunk
when this becomes a final RFC. The problem is as the 
spec stands we would need a syntactic extension, allowing
'xpointer' on parse='text' would be a bit weird. So that
woudl mean an extra attribute definition.
  Still I think this is worth doing, and if we plan this
I may even take the time of an implementation as the RFC
looked sane to me when I quickly looked at it,
