Really, I don't think that looking for consensus at this point of time
makes a whole lot of sense.  We should rather look for workers and they
are of course welcome to any amount of advice others may muster.  Using
a sort-of standard XML/Scheme mapping certainly makes sense regardless
of the details of the approach taken.
