I think the human-readable aspect is highly overrated.  Maybe 
authoring tools should be used to have a clearer idea of what is 
being done.

To me the syntax is perfectly readable, but to others it isn't.

The only problem with readability I have is this:

/DIV ~ P/

Is that style applying to the P or the DIV?
