So in essence you're saying that the requirement is semantic markup, but
you don't care about the syntax.  This actually rules out quite a few of
the contenders discussed in this thread.  Indeed by its very ature
semantic markup is intrusive as it often re-states something that is
obvious from context to the reader, for the sole purpose of making that
context explicit to some processing step later on.  In that case, our
efforts might be better spent in developing ways to recognize such
context and injecting the semantic markup automatically.
