Yea, shows clear and practical reasons why both should be gotten rid of. They have too much "should be displayed only this way" in them... They only limit the author, not extend what he can do, as in LISTING and XMP. While menus and directories are useful, MENU and DIR are not... There are thousands of ways to make menus and directories and it seems MENU and DIR want to limit that pretty drastically while trying to maintain "content description" capabilities. The saying is "bah humbug" or "I am sick of this ..." Enough is enough. You can only describe content so much, then you need to start describing style. The two can not exist without each other, but does one always have to force the other?
