I think it's rather obvious that we won't get something that caters for
every format without actually giving the user the equivalent of
providing a formatting function (in the form of a markup command): even
a format string requires a certain order of elements.

We might provide a stock formatting function that consults the details
and thus can cater for the most common use cases.  But trying to capture
all is just going to make for an incomprehensible and complex interface
that still does not work for all use cases.
