Sure, but you only quoted the 1st part of my mail, the purpose of
which was just to encourage the election of a generic term, as opposed
to yet another specific one :)
What about TROFF, LaTeX, and LOUT markup, to name a few ? A clearly
generic element name in 5.0, maybe with a language/markup/whatever
attribute to tell the type of markup, would even allow to phase out
"sgmltag" in 6.0.
