Hi Nicolas,

"we" was short for "we, Org contributors", and it was a request for
comment, so I'm glad you did.

I understand your point very well: structural consistency favors ease
of maintainance and evolutivity.  The new export engine is a perfect
example of this: without a clean parser, it would not exist.

But this is also a perfect example of what I want to insist on: the
benefit of relying on the parser has to be very clear.  It is not
something you can systematically and blindly taken for granted.

For example, if we were to rely on the parser for fontification now,
it would be certainly too slow, and the cost for the user would be too
high.  I know this rewrite is somewhere on the roadmap, and I know you
will consider it only when the cost of the slowdown will not be too
high -- so the trade-off strategy I was describing is something I
guess we (as in "you and me") agree on.
