I would agree with you most of the time, but in this case there is no
equivalent standard and certainly no equivalent implementation that I'm
aware of that gets you close to the power provided by this set of features.
It might also be worth noting that the little demo is labeled "ACME
intranet" in order to highlight the fact that you can usually only hope for
everyone to have the same type of client when in a controlled environment
such as an intranet.

My mention of disable-output-escaping being useful in this context was about
the extent of my staying on topic for this list, so this will be my last
