I don't *think* I'm talking about a data format in an emacs buffer.

I'm talking about using properties to mark the syntax of pieces of
text (in an ordinary buffer) as they are described in a word processor
schema instance (a document).

I think I'm just going to have to knock up an example and see whether
it's viable.
