To stop any chaos, you could allow people to submit
XML documents so long as they were written very
precisely, with the exact fields we specify in the
normal text submission (on the web site's submission
form) so a perl script could convert it.
But there's no way you could allow people to start
putting in their own customised tags and layout into
the document. As Hector put it, chaos would rein!
