    There is "weight" in terms of bandwidth, but also in terms of mechanisms
    needed to interpret markup. It takes a lot more to handle HTML or XML than
    it does simply language tagging using plane 14 characters -- or some
    simpler form of markup than HTML / XML.

    I'm not trying to argue specifically in favour of the plane 14 characters,
