I*Y*HO.

I completely disagree.  Personally I think the 3.0 proposal was bloated
with more worthless crap that 3.2 or 4.0.  There were a few useful items
I miss - like BANNER - but few.  I don't think the MATH support in 3.0
was well thought out either and I'm glad it was dropped.  If the claims
of portability and the ability to convey real contextual data - to allow
for importing/exporting from mathematics software - hold true, I am more
than happy to wait for it.

A purely presentational system is little better than incluing gifs.  IMHO.
