That is true; I wasn't trying to suggest otherwise.  I was addressing
Stefan's point that HTML rendering in eww isn't that good yet.  I
think the natural consituency for eww and HTML as a browsing format is
so large that if we blow down our barriers to entry somebody will show
up to polish eww to a nice shine.  (In fact, I have a fair guess who that
will be.)

That is not.  It is quite well documented and specified.  It has a canonical
inplementation (asciidoc) and a slightly extended one (asciidoctor).
