Worse.  Makes the first pass through the document grind to a halt at
the first component.  The good thing about the non-combined format,
that you can read it quickly through section 3 and get a sense of the
language, is lost.

Compromise suggestion:  include _one_ _short_ example of the the XML
representation at the end of each subsection of the current
(non-combined) format's section 3.
