I am satisified with the wording of the 9/16 version; in fact, I think it
is an improvement. I would lose the word "such" in "If such a markup" but
consider that trivial and not worthy of delaying the release.
While there may be merit for changing this to a "goals" sections, the time 
has long past for such significant editorial changes.
