I asked first.  :)  You said "some flavor of the current metbamodel
does, in fact, usefully generalize over all the concrete syntaxes I've

Not sure what a conceptual model is.  I'm referring to a metamodel for
the W3C abstract syntax that's in the syntax document.

I would say yes, if you want to address users that look at the
interchange format.  It seems like tney would be a large proportion of
the people looking at any textual syntax.
