You make a good point.
The idea was floated once internally, but never reached the point where we talked to the community about whether XML policy documents would be okay.
If anybody on the list has thoughts on this, it would be great to hear from you.
I’ll add the idea to my discussion topics for Petaling Jaya as well.

In fact, if you maintain an XML document, it is actually relatively easy to generate Text, HTML, and PDF in an acceptable fashion from the XML document. In fact, most RFCs are done this way now.
You will really have a much easier time maintaining this for all those formats going forward if you use an XML authorship tool instead of MS Word. Word is an absolutely horrible choice for attempting to maintain any sort of structured document.
Uh, not IMNSHO.
