Not too likely.

Some users generate PHP, or even Java/JSP, and to go through XML/XSLT
is not very efficient.

Some people tend to forget that many users are not techies and would
be discouraged to go through XML/XSLT just to get what the default
settings of mhonarc do now.  I prefer to not mandate a particular
markup system.

For the greatest flexibility, the special delimiters should be
customizable.  Or better, have a complete template for each page type
vs the separate layout resources.  However, caution is required to
move to such a system without breaking existing archives.

I have considered the later on occassion, but have yet to put the
time in to consider how it can be done and preserver compatibility.
Compatibility can be a b*tch.
