Sean, that is truly inspired! Fantastic!

General point:

Any slogans should emphasise the advantage of XML vis--vis HTML,
*not* vis--vis SGML. That is: It's about the good stuff that SGML
is bringing to the web, not about the bad stuff (and lots of good
stuff) that's getting thrown out of SGML.

So I don't like Peter's "Practise Safe SGML". (Sorry!)
