thanks.  (i assumed that, but ...)

yeah.  i sort of wonder if one can roughly categorize our typical uses
of org-mode into two types:

- random scribbles, agendas, etc., where the consumer is "ourselves" for
  the most part
- more formal presentations (web sites, papers), where the consumer is
  the broader world

and, to the extent this is true, i wonder if some markup issues have a
tension between those two uses.  e.g., for a formal document, i might be
willing to have "heavier" markup, to eliminate (...) false
positives/negatives.  (another example is in-line math markup, with
dollar signs or backslah-parens.)

cheers, Greg
