I think that your ideas are very useful.
Throw. I really like the use of errors to communicate back important
information (esp. the use of the Near error field). I wonder whether parse
could have some default functionality like you have made that could be
turned on when using it for validation only.
Interpret With. Allowing control functions is really powerful, and can be
best understood where the dialect input to process is "generating" something
(e.g xhtml). Its a great idea, it raises the standard for dialects that we
implement. Now I know that you have made handling of control functions
optional by allowing the the choice to use the Interpret term or not, but I
wonder about security in the situation where some dialect input comes from a
potentially un-trustworthy or unreliable source. [ repeat count 1000000...]
could become an x-internet denial-of-service attack. :^)
I'm sorry I don't have something more valuable or constructive to contribute
to your great work! Thanks again for your efforts.
