9 1. Who are the primary beneficiaries of this suggestion?:
11 a. People with expert knowledge of development systems and people
12 with Gentoo Privileges
14 b. End users who may not be experts, in all things development, but
15 may be able to contribute and consume content.
17 2. What compromises in flexibility does this create? Eg: Do suggested
18 replacements have capacity to have arbitrary HTML and templating? Or
19 are they restricted to the terribly narrow featureset of Markdown?
22 If you're optimising for 1-a and your choice of compromise results in a
23 reduction in functionality with regards to clear, flexible, and
24 expressive content, it will be hard to sell me on the idea.
