Yes, it's my hope that we get it into the WG2 input hopper. But I completely agree, a standards group should generally be standardizing stuff that is already implemented, preferably in many places.  I don't expect WG1 to consider this.  My hope for WG1 is that they don't endorse something that would make this impossible later (and I don't think they have).

One thing that'd be *nice* would be if WG1-small would be willing to add "{" and "}" as delimiters.  But it's certainly not necessary, and I've been presuming that we wouldn't be able to influence WG1-small, given the current state.
