i don't understand that. if you're working on the format, doesn't that 
imply you're defining the model? developers then simply implement the 
model that is defined by your format, right?

i don't think i can follow you here, but the substitution rules you are 
mentioning don't look very nice. URI-wise, # and ? serve different 
purposes, and creating such a substitution rule to me looks as if you're 
pretty much guaranteeing that things will break for anybody not aware of 
your special rules. if for passing around URIs you also have to pass 
around special rules how to handle them, that's not a good sign.

i think i don't fully understand what you're trying to do and what 
you're proposing to solve your problem, but like i said above, the 
special handling rules look a little suspicious. maybe michael has a 
better idea of your scenario and can help.
