The more we introduce variability, the more we are getting close of  
the SGML mess and the more we are making it harder to teach.

As a geek, I enjoy shorter syntax too (and authoring tools giving me  
these possibilities), but I do not think it is wise at all to  
introduce these things in the syntax. Not at all.
