Yes, agreed.  But railroad diagrams would also be only informative, I hope.  I
don't think we can have both a formal grammar and formal parsing rules without
severe risk that they don't match, so I took the previous discussion as saying
that No, we won't have a formal grammar, but we'll try to make life easier for
authors by supplying railroad diagrams or an authoring guide.  In the lack of
diagrams, I suggest we at least point towards the guide.
